Due to the current COVID 19 situation, we will not be able to hold face-to-face meetings for the foreseeable future. However, in an effort to provide fruit growers in the New England region (and beyond) the same quality educational opportunities we have in the past, fruit Extension Educators throughout the region joined forces in a collaborative effort to develop a winter series of online educational programming.
ENYCHP specialists are working closely with this group to make NYSDEC credits available for a number of these meetings.
