On Farm Tulip Forcing Workshop at the von Trapp Greenhouse in Waitsfield, Vermont
Monday, October 18, 2021
This is a full day on farm workshop in Waitsfield, Vermont that covers all of the ins and outs of tulip forcing. I will have bulbs available for purchase for workshop participants. During the workshop we will tour the facilities that I use here on the farm and we will cover the following topics: forcing steps, resources and materials, growing practices, season extension (this will include snow bunkers, cold holding, etc.), pest pressure and disease, harvesting and processing, ordering bulbs (timelines and contacts), tulip varieties (the best and worst for forcing), marketing, income breakdown, potted bulbs, etc. This workshop is hands on and is a very full day on the farm.
During the on farm workshop, Sunday morning refreshments will be served. A delicious lunch spread of locally sourced food is also included in the workshop (when registering please indicate any dietary restrictions.)
Participants will also join a facebook page where information can be shared and questions answered following the workshop.
This option is being offered on:
Monday, October 18th 9:00-4:00 (space is limited)
