Demystifying Sanitizers Workshop
Tuesday, October 20, 2015 from 2pm to 5pm
Edgewater Farm, 246 NH-12A, Plainfield, NH 03781

The current food safety best practice recommendation for all growers (whether you are GAPs certified, will fall under FSMA or not) is to use sanitizer in your wash water. But knowing which product to use, how to use it, calculate the appropriate amount, dispense it safely and monitor the efficacy can be tricky! At this hands-on workshop you will practice all of these steps with both bleach and a peroxyacetic acid-based sanitizer and have help figuring out how to apply them to your set-up. There is no fee for this workshop. Registration is limited to 18 participants.

Register at: http://sanitizersworkshop.eventbrite.com or call Cheryl Herrick at

Registration deadline: Tuesday, October 6
