The 2017 Greenhouse Hydroponic Tomato and Lettuce Intensive Courses will be offered again in January 2017. You can attend just the Tomato specific course from January 2 – 7, just the lettuce specific course from January 6 – 9, or attend both courses from January 2 – 9. The tomato intensive instructor will be our newly appointed hydroponic specialist Dr. Stacy Tollefson, while the lettuce intensive will be taught by lettuce/business expert Myles Lewis, MS.

The courses will combine classroom time with time in the greenhouse in order to put the lessons learned by lecture into real world practice.
