Hoophouse workshop a hit

New Entry’s first Winter Growing and Hoophouse Workshop was a hands-down success, attracting 39 enthusiastic participants who left with a wealth of information about using hoophouses to grow vegetables in winter. The course was held at the Casey Family Services Conference Room in Lowell, and afterwards a group of participants carried on the conversation at New Entry’s offices down the street.
Adam Montri, a Michigan State University outreach specialist, led the workshop, presenting material and fielding questions on hoophouse site location, design, construction, cultivation and planting schedules, and a host of other topics related to winter production in hoophouses.
Participants took home resource packets. You can find more hoophouse resources online at Adam’s hoophouse blog (http://www.hoophouse.msu.edu/), a Kansas State site dedicated to hoophouses (http://www.hightunnels.org), or the year-round cropping schedule PDF available here.
