Greenhouse Production: Seeding, Transplanting & Marketing Crops
Greenhouse Production: Seeding, Transplanting & Marketing Crops
Saturday, March 17, 2018
South Chicago Farm, 8900 S. Green Bay Ave

Participants receive hands-on training to learn how to mix soil, seed, harvest, wash and package a variety of crops. Participants engage in-group discussion focused on year-round greenhouse production and marketing strategies to effectively sell products within marketplaces that suit their goals and resources. This information will provide a springboard to begin strategizing how products and services will be sold to generate revenue for the enterprise. Planning value-added products, workshops, sales to restaurants, Community Supported Agriculture, and farmers markets will all be explored through small group discussion and a questions and answers session.

*Scholarship application available upon request; please contact info@urbangrowerscollective.org
