Harvest Skills Workshops


The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is hosting harvest skills workshops. This workshop series teaches participants proper harvesting techniques. The objective of these workshops is to give participants the skills they need to harvest produce from their own garden properly, so their plants can stay productive and disease free. Participants will also gain the skills needed to present their produce in an appealing way to customers in a market or vendor setting.

Participants may attend as many workshops as they desire. During the spring workshops participants will grow greens, turnips, and spinach. During the summer workshops participants will grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and beets. Participants will get to take home a portion of the produce harvested during the workshop.

Harvest Workshops


The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is hosting multiple harvest workshops. Our harvest workshops will equip participants with skills to harvest produce from their own garden properly, so their plants can stay productive and disease free. Participants will also learn how to present their produce in an appealing way to customers, in a market or vendor setting.

Hands-on experience will be earned with opportunities to harvest collards, kale, basil, lettuce, and other vegetables from the fields and our hydroponic and aquaponic systems. Participants will get to take home a bag of the fresh produce harvested during the workshop.

Participants may attend as many workshops as they desire. A minimum of six participants is required!
