North Carolina State University and North Carolina Cooperative Extension are partnering with the Center for Environmental Farming Systems/North Carolina Growing Together Project (CEFS/NCGT), Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA) and Vance-Granville Community College to deliver workshops across the state with the aim of providing farmers with the tools to reduce food safety risks and meet market requirements.

The Navigating the USDA GAP Audit workshop, will combine classroom and on-farm instruction to provide producers with the tools needed to identify potential food safety concerns, as well as strategies to minimize potential contamination. Available resources, including cost-share assistance and consulting services, will be provided to growers to assist with the implementation of an effective on-farm food safety program.

Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance to fulfill training requirements for USDA GAP/GHP certification.

Portions of the workshop will take place outside. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle, and appropriate weather gear. The workshop will take place rain or shine.
