Blueberry Growing Is Workshop Topic

COLUMBIA — Fred Olday of Cherryfield Foods will lead a workshop titled “So, You Want to Grow Blueberries!” on Saturday, April 18, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Participants should meet in front of the Dollar Store at the Four Corners by the Columbia Supermarket.

The workshop will consist of visits to a number of local blueberry fields in various stages of development. The purpose of the workshop is to outline the management steps that must be taken to develop new fields and to improve old ones.

Anyone interested in blueberry production is welcome, including those who are simply interested in how local growers manage their crop.

Participants should bring warm clothing and proper footwear, including raingear if the weather fails to cooperate.

Carpooling is anticipated.

A $10 contribution is requested. Advance registration is required by Friday, April 17.
