Purdue Extension is participating in the Great Lakes Vegetable Producer's Network, a live weekly roundtable discussion during the growing-season for commercial vegetable producers in the Great Lakes and Midwest region. Join us! We broadcast live via Zoom at 12:30 ET/11:30 CT every Wednesday from the first week of May to the first week of September. You must register to be a part of the live audience (https://mailchi.mp/5151ac5c28e5/greatlakesvegnetwork). If you have a pressing vegetable production issue that you would like discussed, simply email it, along with your phone number, to email@example.com.
In the first episode on May 6, 2020, the network will interview Amanda Byler, a family nurse practitioner with Great Lakes Bay Health Centers who works with migrant worker communities, and Annalisa Hultberg, University of Minnesota Extension Educator for on-farm food safety. Topics of discussion will include farm family, farm worker and customer safety as we enter our production season during a global pandemic.
