Twilight Meetings

Twilight Meetings give agronomic crop growers an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas and information to improve their crop operations. The concept is to provide support and education to experienced crop growers by touring a local farm. Typically, these meetings are in person and University or Industry professionals may attend meetings to help facilitate or structure the programming.

Join NH Vegetable and Berry Growers Association (NHVGBA) & UNH Extension for this climate-resilience focused series. Attend one or more events to learn how your farm can adapt to better withstand the challenges of climate change, and how together we are working towards farmer-driven actionable solutions.
