Mountain View Hops is proud to present and host the Small Scale Mid-Atlantic Hops Growing workshop on June 22, 2019.
This workshop is designed to educate, enlighten, and engage potential and current small scale hops growers throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. This will be an all day event complete with presentations, guest speakers, and free access to the MVH hop yard right next to the event.
If you have ever been interested in learning how to grow hops in your own backyard or on a small one acre or less plot of land, then this is the workshop for you! Topics include planting, trellis designs, soil nutrients, pruning, pest/disease controls, harvesting, marketing, and more! There will be regular intermissions between the main presentation to network with fellow attendees.
This event will begin at 9 AM on June 22, 2019, and end around 3 PM. Tickets go on sale starting on January 1, 2019 through May 1, 2019.
The workshop will be held under a tent; however, all hop yard walk-throughs are conducted outside and subject to the weather conditions at the time. Please dress appropriately for the conditions and bring any rain gear, mud boots, sun glasses, etc. as needed. Snacks and drinks are welcome as the presentations will last for several hours with intermissions. No alcohol please. Smoking is allowed at designated areas. Restroom facilities and chairs will be provided. Lunch will also be provided with vegetarian options.
