Are you an urban grower navigating the rules and regulations related to growing and selling food? A gardener who is thinking of selling some of your produce? A school or non-profit organization involved in farming?
Workshop #4 @ Second Chance Youth Garden (Thursday, April 26, 2018) Food safety is a cornerstone of successful farming, and buyers may require special certifications. It is also an area that’s increasingly regulated. This workshop will guide urban growers through food safety planning. Participants will:
• Learn about laws related to community food producers and food safety.
• Gain the tools to develop a Food Safety Plan, and how to assess and minimize the risk of contamination on the farm.
• Learn best practices for sanitation, post-harvest handling, and worker health and hygiene.
Hosted in partnership with SDFSA, and Second Chance Youth Garden.
This is the first in a series of four San Diego County workshops that will be held on 3/23, 4/5, 4/19, and 4/26, covering additional urban agriculture topics. Information and registration for all four workshops can be found at:
Offered by UC Agriculture and Natural Resources and UC Cooperative Extension-Los Angeles County, along with the San Diego Food System Alliance and Seeds @ City Urban Farm at San Diego City College.
