Seeking to meet the needs of commercial growers and homeowners, our diverse horticultural programming focuses on beginning farmer training, commercial vegetable and small fruit production, food safety using Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), private and commercial pesticide applicator use and safety, and training and public outreach to homeowners through the Central Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners Program.
