Those interested may access the livestream workshop online or in person at the ISU Extension and Outreach Jefferson County office, 2505 West Burlington Avenue, Fairfield.

Olson, assistant professor in the ISU Department of Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management.Read the full article on the Iowa Ag Connection website.
