    This free program is a part of our 3rd Annual Penn State Extension Grower Series. Each program will take place on the first Tuesday of select months from 6:00 – 8:00pm, and are held at various farm sites around Philadelphia, or in our Penn State Extension, Philadelphia County office. They are designed to both educate growers about new and exciting opportunities, while providing interaction with others doing similar work. We will be offering several sessions each season, from the Spring through Winter. Talks are free to attend with registration.
