Let's Talk About Hops!

Sponsoring Organization: MGANM (Master Gardener Association of Northwest Michigan)

Location : Northwest Michigan Horticultural Research Center (NWMHRC), 6686 South Center Highway, Traverse City, MI 49684

Description of the Event: Who: Rob Sirrine, MSU Extension Educator
What: Learn all about the plant that gives life to beer! Humulus lupulus is a fast growing crop for local farmers, but how does it differ from other crops? And with vertical growth, how do you harvest it? MSU Extension has a hop variety planting trial at this location, and they will show us how a hop-picking machine works. Please bring comfortable clothing and shoes based on the weather, as we will be doing light walking in the planted area.

Education Credit Hours: 1
