Event description

Description

Learn to build a low-cost low-tunnel from the tunnel designer herself! Lisa Garfield of Calliope Farm will share design plans, materials lists, cost estimates, and provide a short demonstration of the construction process. There will be opportunities for 'hands-on' learning.

Farm Owner Lisa Garfield will provide an overview of the many benefits to using a moveable low tunnel, from mitigating salinization of your soil to preventing plant diseases and more! All participants will receive a copy of the low tunnel building plans. Tunnel specs: 10’wide x 8’high x 96’long (length is not fixed).

Paul Gallione, Johnny’s Seeds Mid Atlantic representative, will discuss selecting crop varieties for overwintering in tunnels in our zone. We'll end with a pot-luck lunch—bring a dish to share!

Parking is limited, please carpool if possible.
