WCH partners with Local Roots for Good Agricultural Practices training
Wooster Community Hospital and Local Roots have joined together to promote safe food handling. Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) are used to reduce risk on farms. Microbial contamination can happen anywhere from farm to fork. On the farm, contamination sources vary from animals, water, soil, and above all humans.
Local Roots will host a GAP training on Monday, June 25th from 6 to 9pm. The 3 hour training program will be taught by Ohio State University Extension Agents and will help you determine if you should have your farm GAP certified. Attendees will be awarded a certificate of participation upon completion.
The cost is $10 per person and includes dinner from Local Roots Cafe’ for those who pre-register/pre-pay, courtesy of Wooster Community Hospital. Dinner will be served between 5 and 6pm.
