Purdue Extension offers marketing workshops for vegetable farmers

There is still time to register for the two remaining 2016 “Wholesale Success” workshops offered by Purdue Extension this Friday and Saturday. Participants will receive a comprehensive Wholesale Success Manual and have the opportunity to network with other growers and wholesale buyers.

“These workshops are quite valuable for any size vegetable grower seeking new wholesale accounts in the local and regional food systems,” said Jodee Ellett, Purdue Extension local foods coordinator.

The trainer is Atina Diffley, an organic farmer, public speaker and author. “She brings a wealth of experience, insight and knowledge to her trainings and has trained thousands of vegetable farmers,” Ellett said.

Sign-in for all workshops will begin at 8:30 a.m. All workshops will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $20, which includes lunch, beverages, snacks and the manual. Registration is available at http://tinyurl.com/zty24wf.

Friday, Feb. 12: Smith Family Farm, 7055 W. 675 S., Pendleton.

Saturday, Feb. 13: Parke County Extension Office, 1472 N. U.S. 41, Rockville.
