March 19-20, 2020
8:45am - 5:00pm (Check-in time on Day 1: 8:15am)


Start your own greenhouse! People consider starting a greenhouse for a variety of reasons, and greenhouse farming provides a way to grow year-round. However, managing the production system and its environment requires extended knowledge and constant attention to detail.

This two-day short course is designed to introduce beginners to greenhouse crop production and will cover topics including:

  • Controlled environment crop production;
  • Plant pests;
  • Plant diseases;
  • Plant nutrition;
  • Hydroponics;
  • Food safety;
  • Plant lighting;
  • Round table discussion;
  • And more!

NOTE: This is a two-day course. The second day will take place at different local greenhouses, giving students the opportunity to view and compare different greenhouse operations. Students will need to drive themselves to the greenhouse locations. On day one, we will provide breakfast and lunch. On day two, no food will be provided.


NOTE: Individuals who wish to receive pesticide recertification credits at any of our courses will need to know their applicator license number and arrive at class on time. Please bring your pesticide license with you to class. If you are late to class, you will not receive credits.
