“2021 Field to Fork Webinars Scheduled”

“2021 Field to Fork Webinars Scheduled”

We are excited to announce that North Dakota State University Extension again will host the Field to Fork “Wednesday Webinar” series starting in February 2021. I tuned in to several last year, and they were great! I highly recommend signing up for these “free” webinars.


The free webinars will be held each Wednesday from 2-3p.m. Central time February 10- April 21. They will be archived for later viewing; however, participating in the “live” webinars allows you to interact with the presenters. When you sign up you’ll receive two reminder emails, a link to an evaluation survey, and a message about how to access the recording for each of the 11 webinars.


The webinars are free of charge but preregistration is required. The webinars will be held on Zoom. The Field to Fork website (https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/fieldtofork) has a link to register.


Topics that will be covered are:


  • Feb. 10: Shopping in a Garden Center: Tips for Customers and Managers, Don Kinzler, NDSU Extension agent, horticulture, Cass County


  • Feb. 17: Growing Safe Produce for Distribution to Food Pantries, Barbara Ingham, professor and Extension food science specialist, University of Wisconsin-Madison


  • Feb. 24: Hot Topics in Food Preservation, Karen Blakeslee, Extension associate, Kansas State University


  • March 3: High Tunnel Cut Flower Production, Esther McGinnis, associate professor and Extension horticulturist, NDSU


  • March 10: The Best Vegetable Varieties for 2021, Tom Kalb, Extension horticulturist, NDSU


  • March 17: Weed Control in the Home Garden, Randy Nelson, Extension home horticulture and agriculture production systems educator, University of Minnesota


  • March 24: The “Good” Creepy Crawlers in Your Garden, Janet Knodel, professor and Extension entomologist, NDSU


  • March 31: Maple Syrup Production, Joe Zeleznik, Extension forester, NDSU

  • April 21: How to Start a New Food Business, Amy Illg, program administrator, North Dakota Department of Health, Division of Food and Lodging


This project is made possible with funding from the US Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service. Hope to “see” you at the webinars!
