KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Growing Growers, a program aimed at supporting new fruit and vegetable growers in the greater Kansas City area, has set the dates for its 2017 educational workshops.
“The program is a collaborative effort to provide education to new and experienced growers who are or who would like to grow fruits and vegetables to sell, to help strengthen the local food system in the Kansas City area,” said Londa Nwadike, consumer food safety specialist with University of Missouri Extension and Kansas State Research and Extension.
The 2017 Growing Growers workshops are held in various locations. Check www.growinggrowers.org for more information.
For those wanting even more hands-on experience, Growing Growers also operates an apprenticeship program in which individuals can work on fruit and vegetable farms in the Kansas City area (including Kansas and Missouri) to get first-hand, practical farming experience. The apprenticeship season has already begun, but there are still available spaces on local organic host farms.
Growing Growers is a collaborative effort of K-State Research and Extension, University of Missouri Extension, Lincoln University Cooperative Extension, Cultivate Kansas City, KC Healthy Kids, and the Kansas Rural Center.
