Green Side Up Host Richard Hentschel talks with Ellen Philips about Good Agricultural Practices and how important that is becoming with our local food produces and what is driving this effort. The concept started about 10 years ago and has evolved each year since. Local growers can continue to improve how they grow, harvest, store and ship their produce before it makes to the final consumer. GAPS training provide a "value added" aspect to the already high quality local foods being produced for consumers.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
