This workshop is the latest in a series of events being coordinated by the VegNET program in Gippsland. If you grow vegetables anywhere between Phillip Island, the Bunyip River, Mallacoota and the New South Wales border, keep an eye out for future events, which include a negotiations and training course, a planned postharvest management workshop and the next round of the VegInnovations value-adding to vegetable products roadshow.
