 Fruit varieties, maintenance and harvest are just some of the topics to be covered in the Introductory Fruit Production Workshop, taking place Wednesday, February 27, 2019 in Nisku. Robert Spencer, commercial horticulture specialist at the Alberta Ag-Info Centre, explains what the workshop will cover.

Every year, a number of new people in Alberta decide to take a look at growing fruit for a living,” says Spencer. “It is an exciting prospect, to be sure. Fruit is something that is generally loved by most people, it is healthy and there are lots of good options to consider.”

This workshop will provide new or potential direct market producers with all aspects of fruit production in the province, including information on production, varieties, establishment, maintenance and harvest, as well as economics. The workshop will include time for networking and questions throughout the day.

“No one person who considers entering the fruit industry in Alberta comes with the same experience, knowledge or even the same approach,” says Spencer.

“Regardless of your experience level, resources are available to help get you started,” he adds. “This workshop is a great way to learn about the three main fruit crops – saskatoon berries, strawberries and raspberries – grown in Alberta, while connecting to resources that will help you along your journey.”

Register for the Introductory Fruit Production Workshop by February 20. This workshop offered by the Alberta Farm Fresh Producers Association.
