We work in a challenging industry!  From basic agronomic principles to marketing information there is a lot to stay on top of.  We at G.S. Long recognize the importance of Continuing Education in the workplace.  It began over forty years ago when Gary Long decided to host his first Annual Grower’s Meeting here in Yakima.  That meeting has grown to over 1,200 in annual attendance and has served as the launch pad for many of the other Grower’s Meetings, Workshop’s and Training Events that we offer today.  Each year, through these G.S. Long Company events, we are able to reach out to nearly 4,000 owners, managers, employees and others who are directly involved in the agricultural industry on a daily basis – in both English and in Spanish.  The ability to serve the industry in this way is something that we are very proud of.


Our Continuing Education programs also represent our commitment to other industry associations and their own efforts in this area.  Some examples include the Washington Tree Fruit Association, the Washington Farm Bureau, wafla, Hop Growers of America, Washington Winegrower’s Association, Northwest Cherry Growers, AgForestry, and more.  We applaud the efforts of these and all organizations committed to being an active resource for our industry.


We believe that Continuing Education promotes safe, healthy and successful individuals, operations and industries.  Please visit our events calendar for a list of upcoming events; we look forward to seeing you there!  Thank you for your continued support!
