||Cooperative Extension Annual Meeting/Dinner - Bath
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County is inviting the public to their Annual Meeting Dinner & Open House on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m. at their new CCE-Steuben Office, 20 E Morris St., Bath, NY. The event will feature CCE-Steuben’s final Centennial Lecture, From Concord to Cabernet (and everything in between): Growing Grapes and Making Wine in the Finger Lakes to be presented by Hans C. Walter-Peterson, Viticulture Extension Specialist, Finger Lakes Grape Program. Hans Walter-Peterson’s work currently focuses on canopy and crop load management, vineyard floor management, soils & vine nutrition, vineyard practices that promote fruit quality and vineyard productivity, and generally helping the region’s grape growers to adapt to the curve balls that Mother Nature throws at them every year. Prior to arriving in the Finger Lakes in June 2007, he worked for CCE at the Fredonia Vineyard Laboratory in the Lake Erie region of western New York for six years. Hans is currently working on his Ph.D. in viticulture at Cornell University. There is a $15 suggested donation for the event. Please RSVP to CCE-Steuben at 607-664-2300.
