This year’s garlic school will have a broad focus on disease, insect and weed pests that growers are already dealing with or that may show up in New York from other parts of the country. Cornell pathologists and growers will discuss the latest research on Aster Yellows, a disease which has devastated the garlic industry in the Midwest, and the soil-borne diseases such as Fusarium. The latest fertility and weed control research will also be presented. Industry updates will be presented by David Stern of the NYS Garlic Seed Foundation.


We are an educational, not-for-profit, informal, unofficial, unrecognized association created in 1984 over our love of good garlic food and desire to find profitable crops and production for small and family farms.

We act as a clearinghouse of information and research data, and generally fill the void of unbiased information for the cook, gardener, and commercial producer. Our newsletter, The Garlic Press, is published about 4 times a year. We promote production, using appropriate and sustainable practices, and hearty consumption of regionally-grown garlic and all foods. We celebrate this herb by working with local members organizing festivals that combine good food, information, planting and eating material, and merriment.

We welcome members' ideas, suggestions, Garlic Press contributions, and financial support to help keep the Foundation alive.
