This is a 3-hour educational course that covers good agricultural practices or GAPs. GAPs trainings provide growers with the knowledge and tools needed to implement on farm best management practices to reduce food safety hazards and the risk of on-farm produce contamination. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the training. Attending the OSU GAPs class does not equate to being GAPs certified. The event is hosted by The OSU Fruit and Vegetable Safety Team and OSU Extension Medina County. The instructors for this class are Medina Ag Educator Ashley Kulhanek, along with OSU Food Safety Specialist Sanja Ilic,and Ag Educator Marcus McCartney.
This training is often required by farmers markets and produce auctions. Check with your manager for information.
