Event Description

Dubuque County ISU Extension and Outreach and Dubuque Community Garden Coalition are teaming up to host Grant McCarty, University of Illinois Extension Educator, for a Crop Succession Workshop on February 23rd, 6-8pm at Dubuque County Extension Office.

Crop Succession will provide an overview on the basics of setting up a productive crop succession program to guarantee yield and bounty for farmers market vendors, CSA farms, and backyard growers. In this hands-on program, participants will learn what factors to consider with the vegetable varieties and families they will be growing this upcoming season by using Excel spreadsheets, online programs, and other resources.
