The North American Raspberry & Blackberry Conference is going entirely virtual! Due to the ongoing disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NARBA Executive Council has made the difficult decision to pivot to an all-virtual conference. The dates will still be February 22-24, 2022, and we are in the process of making adjustments to the program schedule.
A pre-conference virtual short course, “Getting Started with Raspberries & Blackberries” starts on January 31.
REGISTER NOW! Early-Bird discount has been extended through January 28.
We invite you to join our Facebook communities. These groups are open to all. Share your queries, comments, ideas, and photos.
- Growing Raspberries & Blackberries — for home gardeners, wannabe producers, and commercial growers. More than 2000 members and growing.

Please explore the many resources on our website and let us know how we can help you.
Eat more berries! If you are a consumer, we encourage you to make raspberries and blackberries part of your diet even more! They are nutritional powerhouses — and a delight to taste and to see.
