Workshop on opening your own cottage industry and local farmers markets Saturday, April 20

By Linda Robredo, GDF
On April 20 a workshop on farmers markets and cottage industries will be held at the Frazier Park Library’s community room, 1-3 p.m.

Kern County’s Departments of Environmental Health and Agriculture will present the “How to be legal and start your own micro-business” workshop. They will also talk about growing and distributing food crops, eggs, honey and more.

We will learn about launching a local Frazier Park Farmers Market. Bring your willingness to give it a go. Pick up applications at the workshop to grow your business dream. We can do this together.
