One of the nation’s largest elderberry nurseries is located right here in Oklahoma, on Brent and Valerie Madding’s 360 Farms outside Webbers Falls. The couple raise and breed elderberry plants, filling orders ranging in size from single plants to thousands.

They also market dried berries and flowers, as well as teas made from those products. For four years now, they’ve developed their farm business, focusing on finding and improving elderberry varieties that perform best in Oklahoma.

At this workshop, the Maddings will host participants for a tour of their farm and a series of presentations by themselves and Kerr Center President David Redhage.  Topics will include variety selection, propagation, establishment, production, harvest, marketing, and uses for this perennial native plant, with time spent both indoors and in the field.
