Are you interested in growing small fruit for direct market production but not sure where to start? Do you want to know the best way to prune blueberries? Join Davie County Horticulture Agent Susan Hawkins and Area Specialized Agent Craig Mauney on Friday, Feb. 17, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. for a free workshop on small fruit production and blueberry pruning.

The workshop is aimed at training new growers and market gardeners considering establishing a direct market channel for growing small fruit on the farm such as a “pick-your-own” operation, on farm sales as well as other direct market channels such as the tailgate market. The group will discuss blueberries and blackberries for the region. Specific topics include cultivar selection, site establishment (soil conditions and planting), fertilization, irrigation, pruning, harvesting, and resources for pest control. Workshop includes a lecture followed by a pruning demonstration at Pickett’s Berry’s Farm in Davie County. Workshop will include lecture at the Farm, a tour of the blueberry bushes, and a pruning demonstration of blueberry plants.

Registration is free, but attendance is limited to 25 participants. Register through Eventbrite, or call 336-753-6100 to register. If you have questions about the workshop, please call 336-753-6100 or email smhawkin@ncsu.edu.
