OKRA OBSESSION: GROWING AND UTILIZING THIS INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR
THUR JUNE 9, 2022 @ 10:00-11:00AM
LIVE ZOOM CLASS
PRESENTER: ROBERT “SKIP” RICHTER

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS CLASS

All things okra!  From history to its unique uses across the globe, you’ll learn how to grow okra here, which varieties we can’t live without, how to deal with nematodes and other pests, and how to cook with it.  Presenter Skip Richter will also cover some interesting okra research and the role small scale producers and home gardeners (like you!) are playing in improving okra’s future. Warning: The speaker is not responsible for any okra addiction that participants may experience, but he will provide helpful culinary and non-culinary outlets for managing the effects. 

PRESENTER
Skip Richter has worked as a county horticulturist with Texas AgriLife Extension for 32 years in Montgomery, Travis, Harris, and Brazos County. He has served as the National Gardening Association’s regional horticulturist for the southeastern U.S. and is a contributing editor to Texas Gardener magazine. His Gardening Success radio show in College Station, is available online. Skip’s happy place is sitting in his garden observing and musing about the interactions of plants, insects, and the soil. Okra is the latest in a long list obsession.
