Hi Polly. Is this event going to be geared more towards professional hop growers or backyard homebrewers who want to grow our own? (I'm the latter!) Thanks!
Hi Mark - I only know what the above blurb says (I'm not one of the organizers). Since it's titled "Commercial Production," I assume it's geared more towards "pros" than hobby growers. Call CCE for more info.
Thanks. What is CCE? I could't find that on the web just with the initials.
I enjoyed reading about you and your husband in Chronogram!
The original post, above, gives contact info, including phone numbers, for the folks at Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE). Try calling them - they're organizing the workshop, so they should be able to answer any questions you might have. Glad you enjoyed the article in Chronogram!
I saw the contact info right after I hit post. Thanks again!
