Now is the time to learn some simple techniques to protect your plants, trees, landscape and pipes.

 Cooperative Extension is hosting an Extended Season Marketing Opportunities for Farm and Food Products workshop on Saturday, Nov. 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The workshop is designed for growers and small food producers looking to expand or diversify their direct marketing activities by taking advantage of the growing consumer demand for local foods and food-based experiences.

The workshop will focus on the aspects of marketing fresh and valued-added products through farm shops, winter stands and farmers’ markets, and tourism outlets.
