New Association Forms

Farm Business Management Update, December-January 2002/2003

By Charlie Coale

A new association, Virginia Grown Conference, has been formed in Virginia to bring comprehensive programming to fruit growers, specialty crops growers, and direct marketers. A concurrent meeting format will offer attendees the opportunity to select sessions of interest. A trade show will feature over 70 exhibitors and sessions for all three groups. The subject matter of the program will be published in December. The program is scheduled for January 27-29, 2003, at the Sheraton West, Richmond, Virginia. Please contact the Virginia State Horticulture Society, P.O. Box 2445, Winchester, VA 22604, or call Liz White at (540) 667-9101 for program information.
