AUSTIN -- A “Farming Fundamentals Series” will be presented by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service during three consecutive Wednesdays in October, said the agency’s agent for horticulture in Travis County.

The programs will be held from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Oct. 12, 19, and 26 at the agency offices, located at 1600-B Smith Road in southeast Austin, according to Daphne Richards, program coordinator.

“This series will be helpful for home and small-plot producers, including those who grow to sell at farmers markets, are involved in sustainable foods efforts, or are interested in community gardens and other small-yield production,” Richards said.

She said series instruction will focus on various horticultural and business aspects of growing and selling vegetable and fruit crops.

The Oct. 12 program will address plant pathology, the economics of small-acreage production, vegetable production, and product marketing.

The Oct. 19 program will address the Texas Environmental Quality Incentives Program, organic certification, and soils, fertilizers, and composting.

The Oct. 26 program will cover planning a small-scale farming operation and will include an overview of fruit crops and community resources available to small-scale producers.

The cost for all three programs in the series is $125, and lunch is provided during each program.

All registration must be done through the Texas AgriLife Extension Conference Services, and space is limited to 25, so attendees are encouraged to register as soon as possible, Richards said.

To register, go to the conference services website at and use keyword “farm” or call 979-845-2604.
