The conference isn't just about imparting knowledge but rather facilitating the growth of a sustainable vegetable producing community. In partnership with Waller, Wharton, Harris, Galveston, Brazoria, Colorado and Austin counties, Fort Bend County aims to teach sustainable practices that help vegetable producers maximize efficiencies and profitability in the upper Gulf Coast region. So, whether you're a seasoned producer or a newcomer to the field, this conference is an excellent opportunity to learn, network, and grow.

Additionally, Texas Department of Agriculture Pesticide Applicator license holders can earn up to five continuing education credits at the conference. For more information, visit or contact Lorraine Niemeyer at 281-633-7033
