Learn how to use Harvest Hub Yolo website

By From page A9 | May 10, 2013

On Monday, the Yolo County Department of Agriculture will teach growers and consumers how to post and purchase products from the Harvest Hub Yolo website, www.harvesthubyolo.org. Two training sessions are planned, from 9 to 11 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. at the Yolo County Department of Employment and Social Services, 25 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland.

Harvest Hub Yolo aims to connect local products with local people. Yolo County Agricultural Commissioner John Young sees the food hub as a virtual marketplace where growers can post products available for immediate sale, and where restaurants, food service directors and consumers can purchase directly from growers.

The Harvest Hub is part of a three-year California Department of Food & Agriculture Specialty Crop block grant received by Yolo County to increase local produce sales, particularly in the five school districts’ lunch programs.

Outreach specialist Nicole Sturzenberger will walk attendees through the process of registering as a user and how to post and purchase from the website. For more information or to RSVP, email her at [email protected].
