Thanks to a grant from the Specialty Crops Block grant program and the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce, MSU Extension Service will be hosting two short courses for grape and muscadine growers. One will be held in Verona and the other in Hattiesburg. Each short course will meet on two dates, one in February and one in July, so that attendees can see and experience the vineyard at different growing seasons. Because the grant covers all the expenses, the short course will be free to attend; however, pre-registration is mandatory. Below the schedules and registration form can be downloaded.
This course is intended for COMMERCIAL growers (and those interested in becoming commercial) only — those who currently grow or wish to grow for markets (farmer’s markets, local retail, wineries, etc.). Please see the links above for further details and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you at these great events!
