An Introduction to Growing Grapes in Maine 2018 – Augusta


Thursday, January 11, 2018
10:30 AM to 3:00 PM

This school is designed to help people who are interested in small scale grape production as a commercial enterprise. Interest in grape growing in Maine is expanding as demand for locally grown produce expands and new, hardier varieties of grapes are being introduced. Basic site requirements, site preparation, plant selection, care of young plants, trellising and pruning options, nutrient management, and pest management will be discussed with Dr. David Handley, Vegetable and Small Fruit Specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Dr. Terence Bradshaw, Tree Fruit & Viticulture Specialist, University of Vermont.

Space is limited, so preregistration is strongly advised. Please register by January 5, 2018.  Participants will be provided with the publication “Growing Grapes in Wisconsin” for an excellent reference companion to the workshop.
