CDS tuber Bag & Tag event

In anticipation of the upcoming CDS Annual Tuber Sale, the CDS is meeting to show members how to select healthy tubers for their garden or for sale. This is a “hands on” event. Members are welcome to bring some tubers to be bagged and tagged for the sale and to discuss the details of what makes a healthy tuber and how to label it using the ADS classification guidelines.

Plastic bags and labels will be provided.

You do not need to bring tubers to attend.

There will not be a membership meeting at this event, nor a pot-luck. This event will not be available via Zoom.
