Next Generation Tree Fruit Network

next gen network
Supporting the Future Faces of Farming. We offer educational opportunities for Young and Next Generation Growers, Managers & Industry Professionals. This new project began in 2016 as a partnership between the WSU Tree Fruit Extension Team and young growers. Every year we work with our advisory group to find topics of interest to Next Generation Growers. We offer six to ten field days and winter learning opportunities every year.

Please contact Tianna Dupont, WSU Extension (509) 713-5346, or Lindsey Morrison (509) 387-3704 with suggestions or to receive announcements.
