Virtual: Farmers, Keep it Growing Series

February 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Keep It Growing

FARMERS, KEEP IT GROWING ALL YEAR LONG SERIES

FREE 7-part workshop series.

  •  Learn from farmers who use “season extension” to harvest more food in spring, fall, and winter.
  • Visit their farms to see how they’re using low tunnels, high tunnels, and caterpillar tunnels to produce more – and earn more money – throughout the year.
  • Connect with other farmers and learn together.

We’ll cover:
1. What you can grow and harvest in the “shoulder” season (Nov-Mar)
2.  How season extension can increase your income, even out your cash flow, and build your business
3.  Challenges and things to consider before building
4. What infrastructure and costs are involved
