Beyond Season Extension: 2013 High Tunnel Workshops in Ohio
From low covers to high tunnels, from hoop houses to greenhouses – producers are finding ever more innovative ways to extend the growing season, and their income stream.
With support from an NCR-SARE grant, Rural Action Ohio and Green Edge Organics are hosting an onsite, high tunnel workshop series called, “Beyond Season Extension: High Tunnels for Season Creation and Economic, Community, and Environmental Sustainability.” The workshops will cover site-specific adaptation of high tunnel agriculture for agriculture professionals and educators to utilize and teach farmers/producers in their regions of service.
Each event will take place at Green Edge Organic Gardens for the first half of the day (16232 Henry Road Amesville, OH 45711) and Amesville Grange Hall for the second half of the day (17486 State Street, Amesville, OH 45711).
Participants can partake in one or several of these workshops ranging from beginner to advanced levels. The workshops are from 10am-4pm on various dates in the 2013-2014 growing season (advanced level workshops noted):
