A post-harvest handling and food safety workshop for fruit and vegetable growers is coming to eastern Iowa. The free workshop from the Iowa State University Extension and outreach entitled Wholesale Success will highlight topics including packing produce, farmer’s market storing and shipping procedures, and the selling and handling of goods. The main workshop will take place March 8th from 8:30 to noon at the Memorial Union Oak Room on the Iowa State campus but workshops will also take place at the Henry, Jefferson, Johnson and Louisa county extension offices during the same time period.
