Cornell Farmworker Program at 2016 CCE Lake Ontario Fruit School

A partnership between the Cornell Farmworker Program and CCE-LOF (Lake Ontario Fruit) addresses labor training needs of the Western NY Fruit Industry by introducing Spanish-speaking commercial arm workers to basic and applied pomological and pest management concepts and modern apple pruning and irrigation practices in the Spanish language.

As part of the program, Cornell Farmworker Program Director, Mary Jo Dudley, will also offer an interactive workshop about how farmworkers and farm managers can deal with workplace challenges, called "Sugerencias para crear buenas relaciones en el trabajo" or  "Tips for Creating Positive Workplace Relations". 

The 2016 CCE-LOF Spanish-speaking Winter Fruit Schools will be on February 23 at Zingler Farms, Inc., Kendall (Orleans County), NY, and on February 24 at KC Bailey Orchards, Inc., Williamson (Wayne County), NY. Read more
