Mock Good Agricultural Practices Audit at High Desert Seed + Gardens in Montrose

June 8, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join this mock audit hosted by the Colorado Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association. We will meet at High Desert for an overview. This will be followed by a walk-through of the farm, led by Colorado Department of Agriculture fruit and vegetable inspectors. Focus will be on Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) and the Field Review, Field Harvest and Field Packing sections of the USDA GAP/GHP audit process.

Participants will learn how to:

1) adapt their growing, harvesting and handling practices to produce safer food crops; and
2) document those practices in a food safety plan.

Once you have signed up, event organizers will contact you with additional event information.

This event is FREE for CFVGA members, but we still need you to register.

Not a member? Cost is $30 per participant or join CFVGA and all from your farm attend free of charge. For more on CFVGA in general and member benefits specifically: https://coloradoproduce.org. Join CFVGA online: https://coloradoproduce.org/join-the-growers-association-2/
