Farm Workshop: Extending the Growing Season, High Tunnels 101
When: Thursday, October 4 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm
Where: SAHC Community Farm
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 cool season crop production, varietal selection, and how daylight hours effect your planting dates. 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!
