Organic Farming & Food Systems Practicum III: Fall Harvest
Workshop participants will learn basic horticulture principles and practices associated with organic vegetable production while exploring how to harvest, wash, and pack vegetables for a variety of local market outlets. In this peak part of the season, we will be working with the New Entry Food Hub to explore aggregation and distribution of local produce, in addition to working in the field to harvest and maintain crops. Additional themes will focus on food safety and post-harvest handling. Taught by experienced staff of New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, participants will either meet online or at Moraine Farm in Beverly. Online course content and mini lectures will explore the economics of small-scale farming focused on direct-to-consumer market outlets.
