Learn to Grow Your Own Hops 

Home brewers can take their hobby to the next level by growing their own hops.

And folks at the Piscataquis County Extension Office can show you how.

They’re hosting a workshop on how to grow hopes in your garden.

Participants can learn what hops need to thrive, how to plant and care for them and how to harvest them.

Three workshops will be held October 21st through the 23rd.

They’ll be at Penquis Valley High School in Milo on the 21st, Piscataquis Community High School in Guilford on the 22nd and Piscataquis County Extension Office in Dover-Foxcroft on the 23rd.

The classes are from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and cost $5.

You can register by calling the Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative at 564-6525.
