Event description

Description

Even though the weather is cold, high tunnels around Minnesota are heating up and getting ready to be planted.

Learn about spring high tunnel production techniques from Tim, Cherry and fellow farmers at this skillshare field day at Holistic Health Farm in urban Saint Paul. Tim and Cherry will demonstrate how they get the most out of their high tunnel in the spring to maximize yield and profit. They will also showcase their hydro/aquaponics set-up as well as their home-scale high tunnel design: mini-hoopers, a modular portable high tunnel for small plot sizes at home gardens and urban farms.

This event will be a "skillshare" field day so please bring your experiences and questions to participate/share in conversations with Tim, Cherry, and fellow farmers on:

  • Preparing your high tunnel for spring production
  • Selecting and growing crops ideal for spring high tunnel production
  • Deciding what size and type of high tunnel is best for you
  • Using cover crops to maintain soil health in high tunnels
  • Incorporating hydroponic & aquaponic systems in high tunnels

Street parking is limited, please carpool when possible. Thank you in advance!

Travel stipends for educators and farmers (experienced, beginning or future farmers) will be available on a first-come first-serve basis.

A link to a survey will be in the confirmation email after registering. Please complete the survey to help us better understand your current knowledge level and apply for a travel stipend.

Stipends will be mailed after the event. While it is anticipated that all requests for travel reimbursement will be granted, SARE grant funds are limited and stipends will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to farmers and Minnesota educators.
