Workshops in Spanish Focus on Grapevine Viruses
The Northwest Clean Plant Outreach and Education Campaign is offering half-day workshops in Spanish focusing on grapevine viruses and associated diseases next month. These workshops are designed for Spanish speaking vineyard workers.
Vineyard workers are in a unique position to be the first point of recognition, response, and control of grapevine viruses. These workshops will provide classroom instruction about grapevine viruses, associated diseases, symptoms, importance of detection, and how the spreading of viruses can be controlled.
Instructors include Leo Garcia and Francisco Sarmiento of the Latino Agriculture Education Program for Viticulture and Wenatchee Valley College, and A. J. Campbell, a graduate student at UC Davis. Attendees will earn three pesticide recertification credits.
The workshops run for 3.5 hours and cost $20. Registration ends Thursday, July 3.
- Tuesday, July 8, at the Heritage University (Building SFH, Room 2386) in Toppenish at 1 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 9, at The Clore Center (2140 Wine Country Road) in Prosser at 1 p.m.
- Thursday, July 10, at the Columbia Basin College in Pasco (2600 N 20th Avenue, Building: CCTE, Room 203) at 1 p.m.
These workshops are presented by Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers in cooperation with the Washington Wine Industry Foundation. The Northwest Clean Plant Outreach and Education Campaign is made possible, in part, by a Cooperative Agreement from United States Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
