2014 Mississippi Strawberry Short Course

It is time to announce the 2014 Mississippi Strawberry Short Course!  This 2-day course will be held in Choctaw, MS (just outside of Philadelphia).  The focus will be to educate those who want to grow strawberries to sell on a commercial scale, whether that be at a local market or to grocery stores, etc.  Speakers will include strawberry expert, Dr. Barclay Poling, MSU faculty, strawberry grower Mel Ellis, and more.  Please see the full details below.  Seating is limited to 50 for this course.  There is no charge to attend, but you must reserve a spot (see details within the brochure on just how to do that).   This project is funded by a grant from the Walmart Foundation and administered by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Center for Agricultural and Rural Sustainability.

  1. It’s pretty unfortunate I can’t attend this course. It sounds like it would be a great experience. I’ve tried growing strawberries in my back garden and it’s pretty difficult to grow them while keeping birds and other critters away.

    • All of the information (presentations, handouts, etc.) will be available at this website soon:

      Hopefully even though you couldn’t make the course this information will help. I will also post my presentations on this blog in the next few days.
