Important Details: Participants should wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, as the fields are packed dirt. You may also want to pack sunscreen and wear a hat, as the plants are in full sun. Carpooling is encouraged, but not required. You will be provided a ratings sheet, writing implement and given general instructions when you arrive. Cold water will be provided.
The ratings take roughly 60-100 minutes to complete and participants may arrive any time between 8:00 am and 11:00 am. The event is free, but space is limited, so you must register by filling out the surveys located above.
