First International Symposium on Elderberry Set for June 2013
The First International Symposium on Elderberry (Sambucus) will take place in Columbia, Missouri, USA, June 9–14, 2013.
This will be the world’s first gathering of international scientists from multiple disciplines studying all aspects of the elderberry plant and fruit, and its use as a food and dietary supplement. Horticulturists, botanists, biochemists, food scientists, economists, and others will gather in Missouri during peak elderberry flowering season for several days of scientific exchange and fellowship. The Symposium is being organized under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science, and research papers resulting from the Symposium will be published in a peer-reviewed stand-alone volume of Acta Horticulturae. More information about the event can be found online.
This event is associated with Michael Gold's 2010 NCR-SARE grant project, "Developing Successful Marketing Strategies For Elderberry Growers And Value Added Processors: A Model For Specialty Crop Development In The U.S. Midwest."
