Introduction to Commercial Medicinal Herb Production

July 28, 2012 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

We will indeed run this workshop on Saturday. As of Friday morning, the forecast shows that rain shouldn't be heavy until after 2 p.m.

Jeff Carpenter, owner and operator of Zack Woods Herb Farm, will lead a farm tour and discuss knowledge he has gleaned from 13 years of commercial medicinal herb production. Topics will include farm and facility layout, equipment, plant propagation, cultivation and harvest techniques, post-harvest processing, marketing, and bookkeeping. Zack Woods Herb Farm produces 35 species of medicinal herbs, garlic and nursery plants for wholesale and retail markets. Boots are recommended for the field tour and participants may bring a bagged lunch for a picnic on the lawn after the tour.

Rain date: July 29th, 10am-12pm

Directions: Google Map. Please park along the driveway to the farmhouse and in the turnaround.
