The South Hill Farmer’s Market is holding an interest meeting next Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 6:00pm at the South Hill Town Hall. If you are interested in growing for a farmer’s market but aren’t sure which products are needed, want to learn more about how to display your products or work with customers, or information on rules and regulations for vendors, come check it out.
Just a reminder that if your private pesticide license expired in December of 2013, you have a grace period in which you may recertified and not have to retake the test. (However, you CANNOT purchase RU pesticides after December 31).
Tonight, February 11, 2014 is the last local pesticide recertification of which I am currently aware, so if you need recertification, then please be sure to attend tonight’s meeting at the Southside Virginia Community College Workforce Building in Keysville, VA from 6-9pm.
