Calling all vegetable growers, gardeners and eaters! Join us at the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center (SWMREC) for an evening walk to learn about what's currently happening in the Michigan State University Extension vegetable programs here, seek advice, kick equipment, grab a bite to eat, and just generally enjoy a summer evening on the farm.​ 

Topics will be defined by the day and makeup of attendees, and may include soil health, irrigation and water management, weed control, pest management, tools and technology, farmer health, and harvest and post-harvest issues.
