Staring down old man winter

The New England winter is around the corner with its short days and cold temperatures – not the ideal conditions for growing vegetables.
So what?
New Entry is offering three winter skills workshops to help growers extend the season and keep busy until spring. The first is coming up in just two weeks:
Winter Growing and Hoophouse Workshop
with Adam Montri, Michigan State University
TIME: 9 am – 1 pm
LOCATION: Casey Family Services Conference Room (18 Palmer Street), Downtown Lowell, MA
Topics will include:
- Structure Options and Selection – which hoophouse is right for me?
- Site Selection and Preparation

The course costs $15, checks made payable to: Community Teamwork. To register, please email nesfp@tufts.edu.
