Interested in Growing Elderberries? Register Now for Upcoming Workshop Hosted by Kerr Center July 13 The Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture will host an elderberry workshop on Saturday, July 13, at the Kerr Center ranch near Poteau, Oklahoma.

The Kerr Center is evaluating several American elderberry varieties under eastern Oklahoma growing conditions. The workshop will feature regional experts on elderberry production and marketing who will address multiple aspects of this increasingly popular perennial crop.

The workshop will begin with a field tour of the Kerr Centerís elderberry trial on the horticulture farm.

Following the tour, the classroom portion of the workshop will begin with a presentation by Patrick Byers. Byers is part of an ongoing University of Missouri Extension project to evaluate elderberries and encourage their production in North America. He will give an overview of varieties, disease and insect concerns, and production techniques.

After lunch, participants will hear from Brent Madding of 360 Farms in Webber Falls, Oklahoma. Brent and his wife Valerie manage several elderberry plantings, focusing on flower production for use in teas.

The Kerr Centerís David Redhage will wrap up the workshop with an overview of the Kerr Centerís elderberry project and its findings to date.

Registration costs $20 per person ($15 each additional family member) and includes lunch. Registration is due by Wednesday, July 10, at 5:00 P.M. Early registration is suggested to secure one of the limited spaces available.
