SCRUB Twilight Workshop Series

Our team of specialists from SCRUB (Sanitizing and Cleaning Resources for yoUr Business) is available to help you overcome a post harvest bottleneck, or improve your wash/pack. We are here to support a limited number of farms as they plan and implement projects to address one of six specific wash/pack topics.

The topic areas and workshop dates are listed below. Space is limited to 15 farms for each topic. All virtual workshops are held live on Wednesday evenings, 6-8:30 pm, and will also be edited and posted for future viewing. The events are FREE!

Farms that sign up for individual assistance with their projects will be asked to take part in a virtual-workshop with other growers working on the same topic, where challenges, plans and resources are discussed as a group. As a participant, you will:

  • Complete a draft project improvement plan (a template will be provided to guide this process)
  • Attend and actively participant in the workshop
  • Implement the revised project improvement plan on your farm
  • Document your results with photos and a brief description of what you did and share with workshop leads

Complete this form to register for a workshop from this series.
