We have monthly board meetings and are always open to any questions or comments so please reach out to any of our board members if you’d like to express anything.
Here are the results from our 2020 Plot! We had 30 hybrids in each of the plots. They were planted on May 10th and harvested on October 22nd by SBT Services. Please reach out to our plot chairman, Brad Fabrizius, at 630-333-8575 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Registration and delivery for seed was supposed to be today, but with everyone on somewhat of a lock down, we will extend the deadline to at least the end of the month. Please get your registration forms to me at your earliest convenience. Hold on to the seed until we can find a good place to deliver it as the office is closed where we normally deliver it to.
