What's Happening 10-28-12

Free class in food handling

Oct. 29-30

Kurt Nolte from the Yuma County Extension Office/University of Arizona Department of Agriculture will be teaching the free, two-part foundation class for “Good Agricultural Practices and Handling” at Yavapai County’s Cottonwood Annex, 10 S. Sixth St. Session 1:  Monday, 1-5 p.m. Session 2: Tuesday 8 a.m.-noon.

This class is the first step if you want to certify your farm to become a “certified approved food source” and become a legal supplier to chefs and restaurants.  The No. 1 restaurant trend nationally is local food. Restaurants cannot market the added value to their customers unless they are buying from certified sources.

Seating is limited to 20 and the class is filling up quickly - so if you have not already registered and wish to attend, reserve your space today. For more information contact: Katrin Themlitz, Director Sedona Community Farmers Market, sedonamarket@gmail.com or (928) 821-1133.
