ABC's Online Workshops
The UCNFA has presented our ABC's workshops in English and Spanish in person for the past 7 years. Participant feedback from these workshops has been overwhelmingly positive. One overwhelming request from participants has been that we provide these workshops online, since not all growers can attend the workshops when they are scheduled.
Now, with the support from a grant from the California Department of Food and Agriculture, UCNFA is pleased to introduce four ABC's workshops available online! These workshops, ABC’s of Horticulture, English and Spanish, and ABC’s of Plant Pathology and Nursery and Greenhouse Pests in Spanish are PowerPoint videos and can be viewed either in their entirety or by topic at any time.
Your Feedback Is Invaluable!
As this is a new endeavor for the UCNFA, your feedback is essential for our continuous improvement of this resource. Please use the right hand navigation bar to provide feedback on each video segment.
