Event Details

Autumn can be bitter sweet as we move into the harvest season bounty and start putting our gardens to bed for the season. For those of who love to grow, and love fresh food, we try to get our fill of both as the growing season winds down for another year. . . but it doesn’t have to! 

Come learn about cold frames: a great way to extend your growing options during the shoulder seasons or even continue growing fresh greens year round. Cold frames can give your garden a head start in the spring, let you keep on growing through the fall, and even allow you to grow fresh food year round. Which greatly expand your access to fresh food and opportunities to play in the dirt.

This 90 minute class will touch on the basics of what cold frames are, how they work, and how to use them to extend your growing and harvest seasons.  We’ll discuss a few different cold frame designs to help give you a better idea of what options may work best for you.

Please bring note taking supplies and appropriate clothing to walk comfortably outside on the 21 Acres Farm. 

Instructor: Tyler Morrison, 21 Acres Facilities Engineer & Sustainability Educator

Tyler Morrison is our Facilities Engineer & Sustainability Educator. Tyler likes to describe his work at 21 Acres as “running around and making things go,” for everything from infrastructure to intellects. His work varies daily and ranges from things like building cabinets and window shades to creating and managing sustainable infrastructure, like our composting system and rocket mass heater project. Tyler loves to share his knowledge of practical solutions for sustainable living in the numerous sustainability-focused classes that he writes and teaches. With a B.S. in Ecology and Conservation Biology and over 10 years’ experience working as a biologist in the Olympic and Rocky Mountains, Tyler’s knowledge and expertise cover an eclectic range—including the performance of electrical work on a training boat as well as rattlesnake and wolf tracking. Recently, Tyler spent five years living in the middle of the wilderness, managing a remote biological research station for the University of Idaho. Tyler always has a smile and, often, a random biological fact for everyone he meets. You can usually find him around the building devising simple solutions for complex problems or explaining how the heck those rocket mass heater things get fire to burn sideways.

21 Acres reserves the right to cancel any class that fails to meet the minimum enrollment numbers required for teacher participation. 21 Acres may also cancel classes due to chef illness or inclement weather. If 21 Acres cancels a class, students will be notified and a full refund will be mailed or a credit issued on the credit card used. Learn more about 21 Acres’ cancellation and refund policy.
