Sour cherries and haskap are excellent fruit crops to grow in Alberta, with lots of potential markets for these tasty berries.
Alberta Agriculture and Forestry has organized a full-day workshop in Olds on all aspects of growing these crops, from planting to harvest. Participants will receive information on varietal selection, establishment, maintenance, and harvest of both fruit crops, as well as how to identify potential markets.
The workshop runs Feb. 21 at the Pomeroy Inn and Suites at Olds College. To register call 1-800-387- 6030 before Feb. 14 or go to the Alberta Agriculture website.
