California almond workshops tell sustainability story June 27 – July 12

Growers find almond sustainability workshops stimulate new ideas about their own practices.

Who should attend: Almond ranch owners and managers who are best able to answer questions about the every day management of the ranch. Owners who are not day-to-day managers may want to attend to learn about the program and bring along a ranch manager or other personnel to fill out the assessment. Workshop materials will be mailed at least four days prior to the event to those who have registered.

Note: This workshop is for almond growers, PCAs or farm managers, hullers, shellers, and handlers only.
