Organic Greenhouse Tomato Production & VOF Social

August 6, 2012 - 3:00pm - 6:00pm

Join Jon Satz as he explains his strategies for managing roughly 8,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space dedicated to the production of certified organic tomatoes. John will discuss grafting techniques, varietal selection, pruning, and disease and pest management- including unique environmental controls. The greenhouses, which are peak ventilated and heated primarily by biomass, will also be discussed. Jon has been farming at Wood’s Market Garden since 2000, and started growing a decade before. The farm raises about 50 acres of crops, with a mix of vegetables and oilseeds. There are also several greenhouses for the production of bedding plants. The Vermont Organic Farmers social to follow will feature products from Wood’s Market Garden. Participate in tasting organic products and provide input on VOF’s marketing campaign.

Registration is requested for the social to follow so we know how much food to prepare. Please register via the link below or call (802) 434-4122.
