During the growing season, we welcome farmers for on-site discussions of the Farm Hub’s work as it progresses. These field days and twilight meetings are an invaluable way for farmers to participate in and learn about the resilient practices we are using on the farm.
Check back for more meetings as they are scheduled. We hope that many area farmers will join us, as together we continue to build a collaborative and inspired learning community in Hudson Valley agriculture.
Join our mailing list and be sure to check the “Farmer (growing for commercial sale)” category to be updated on upcoming farmer event details.
Events are photographed and video recorded for archival purposes. Footage may be used for future educational programming and media.

Fusarium in Garlic Twilight Meeting

5:00 PM-7:00 PM
Farmers are invited to join us for a twilight meeting on Wednesday, June 21 at the Hudson Valley Farm Hub at 5:00 PM (Rain Date: Thursday, June 22). Co-hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE).
The Farm Hub will be hosting its first twilight meeting of the season on Wednesday, June 21 at 5:00 PM to discuss Fusarium, a soil borne fungus that causes garlic to rot. Crystal Stewart of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program (ENYCHP) is conducting a garlic trial across New York State to test the effects of cultural conditions, nitrogen fertility, and inoculum source, and the Farm Hub is pleased to participate as one of this year’s three trial sites.
This meeting will provide farmers and growers the opportunity to expand their general knowledge of field-based disease identification and best-management practices. An optional pot luck following the presentation will begin at 7:00 PM. For more details, please click here.
