From February 24 to the 25th, CFA is offering a field trip to Athens, OH to see how Green Edge Gardens grows produce for market year round! Green Edge has developed an in-depth curriculum for all growers from beginners to advanced to extend their growing season in a climate and terrain similar to Eastern Kentucky’s.

This field trip is targeted towards all levels of Eastern Kentucky growers. The $25 fee will include a tour of ACEnet, a full-day season extension workshop at Green Edge Gardens, and travel, meals, and lodging. A “pay what you can” option is available as well.

There is a 40 person limit to the trip, so register as soon as you can! Deadline for registration is February 12.
