Extending the Season: High Tunnels 101

November 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Are you interested in learning more about growing crops during the colder months? Join Christina Newhouse from Southwestern NC Resource Conservation & Development Council as she discusses season extension.
In this informative workshop, you will learn how to extend your growing and marketing seasons while making more money.

We will start in the classroom, discussing cover crop protection, varietal selection, and construction of the various types of hoop houses. Then we will tour SAHC’s Farmer Incubator Program season extension infrastructure to see some of the techniques discussed. This workshop is open to the public; everyone is welcome!

Cost: $20
