Redlands Community College Planting Workshop

Redlands Community College in El Reno will host a planting workshop on Saturday, April 15. The workshop is free and open to the public.

RCC is planting a test vineyard at its Darlington Applied Research Center located 2 miles north and 3 miles west of El Reno. The workshop begins at 9:00 a.m. and should conclude by noon.

Twenty-two varieties will be planted including both grafted and own-rooted vines. Ten lucky participants will walk away with vines to plant in their own vineyards.

The Oklahoma State Regents recently approved RCC’s request to offer an associates degree in viticulture and enology. The test vineyard will be used in the program. Curriculum development for the program is underway and announcements are expected soon.

To register for the planting workshop please contact:
Andrew Snyder at snydera@redlandscc.edu or (405 ) 262-2552 ext. 2436.
