Locally grown vegetables are fresh, delicious, and can boost the local economy. The 4th annual Central Kansas Market Vegetable Growers Workshop, sponsored by Sedgwick, Butler, Harvey, and Reno County Extension, will give beginning and experienced vegetable growers new skills to improve their production methods and marketing skills for selling their local vegetables, while meeting an increasing demand for locally grown produce.

The workshop will cover the basic vegetable and fruit production with a special emphasis on fruit production this year. Topics will include: apple production, peach production, tomato grafting research update, winter gardening, post-harvest care of produce, and K-State research update.
