More Virtual Programs – Vegetable Crops Hotline

More Virtual Programs

Many vegetable programs are going virtual this year. Although we missed the in-person experience, the virtual meetings provide opportunities for participating in meetings we usually can’t. Even better, many great events are free of charge, and the cost to attend large conference is more affordable. Here are some of the upcoming free events that you may find interesting to attend.  A complete list of big shows can be found on this Great Lakes Vegetable Working Group site.
