This two-part Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) workshop series will address how farmers of all sizes can achieve USDA GAPs certification, deliver information on principles of fresh produce safety and on-farm hazard assessment, as well as provide assistance with creating a fresh produce farm safety plan. Lunch is included with both workshops.

Part 1
Navigating the USDA GAP Audit
Date: December 1
Location: 3230-D Presson Road Monroe, NC 28112
Cost: $10

The first workshop, Navigating the USDA GAP Audit, will be based on newly developed components focused on navigating a GAPs audit. This workshop will combine classroom and on-farm instruction to provide producers with the tools needed to identify potential food safety concerns as well as strategies to minimize contamination. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance that fulfills a portion of the eligibility requirements to receive up to $600 in GAPs Cost Share assistance from CFSA.

Portions of the first workshop will take place outside, rain or shine. We will carpool from the Extension office. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle and appropriate weather gear.

Part 2
Fresh Produce Safety Program and Plan Development
Date: December 8
Location: 3230-D Presson Road Monroe, NC 28112
Cost: $10
***Laptop required for this section. Please notify Trish Tripp if you do NOT have a laptop.

The second workshop, Fresh Produce Safety Program and Plan Development, conducted in a computer lab, will provide direct assistance to producers in completing a fresh produce safety plan. Attendees will leave this session with a well-developed working draft of their specific food safety plan, which becomes the framework for an audit, and can be used to demonstrate individual farm risk-reduction steps. Completion of the first workshop is a prerequisite and basic computer knowledge is required in order to receive the maximum benefit from this session.

Note: You must register for Part 1 to attend Part 2.
