Intro to Selling Homegrown Produce is part of a workshop series hosted by Penn State Extension in partnership with The Food Trust, BUGS, and Grow Pittsburgh and is made possible by a grant from the USDA’s Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP).
This workshop will introduce backyard growers to their options when it comes to selling produce at a farm stand or farmers market. Hear from fellow gardeners in Pittsburgh who are working on forming grower collectives and their challenges, successes, and goals!
Refreshments will be provided.
Backyard growers, farmers, and anyone else interested in learning about selling produce as a homegrown collective!
You will hear from gardeners in Pittsburgh who are working to form collectives and learn about their goals, challenges, and successes so far. You will also have a chance to meet other backyard growers in Pittsburgh and to raise questions in a group discussion.
