Organic Cucurbit Growing Community
The Organic Cucurbit Growing Community consists of a group of growers, educators, and researchers seeking better ways to grow cucurbit crops (muskmelon, cucumber, pumpkin, and squash) organically. Managing major diseases, addressing insect pests, and safeguarding the native bees that pollinate these crops are some of these strategies.
This community was created as a result of a 4-year USDA Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative (OREI) grant project. The goal is to offer new information on various topics related to organic cucurbit growing and also to create and sustain a community where anyone involved in cucurbit production - growers, consultants, educators, and researchers - can share their knowledge, ideas, and experiences
