Dear hemp growers, service providers, and businesses interested in the hemp industry,
We invite you to join us for an educational and networking event on Thursday, June 2, 2022, from 3-7 pm at Running Brook Farms, Killingworth, CT. The educational portion will include farmer panel discussions covering Hemp IPM as well as reduced tillage for plant growth and soil health. The day will include updates from the field & greenhouse with a Hemp Tour at Running Brook Farm. USDA NRCS will be on site with the Soil Health Rainfall Demo to show the impact of runoff.
The second half of the event will include a Seed Swap and Clone Sale. Enjoy food and a chance to connect while listening to live music sponsored by CHIA. A variety of vendors and exhibitors will be at the farm for the duration of the event. This event will provide valuable resources for local producers seeking to make connections, gain knowledge, and connect with the Hemp community.
