The Northern Piedmont Specialty Crops School is designed to explore the art and science of growing and marketing specialty crops.

This year's school will feature a chef who manufactures gourmet food products throughout the country by buying the raw product from growers and processing it into a “value-added” product for re-sale, a veteran roadside marketer, and an North Carolina A&T Extension Specialist who will speak on marketing and creating a business logo.

The school will be held in the auditorium of the Person County Cooperative Extension Center, 304 S. Morgan St., Roxboro, N.C The cost of the one-day school is $25 for the first person of a family or business and includes lunch. The cost will be $15 for each additional family member or business associate, which also includes lunch Pre-registration is needed to guarantee a seat and lunch. I look forward to seeing you in Roxboro, N.C. on Friday, Feb. 25, 2005.
