Using Greenhouses to Grow Vegetables

Thursday, February 16th, 2017; 6pm – 8pm; $5/family

Eat (or sell) home grown produce 12 months of the year! In this session participants will learn about different season extension structures such as greenhouses, high tunnels and row covers used to grow vegetables. Crops include greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and more. Site selection, structures, crop nutrition and pest management will be covered. Bring your ideas and questions! Judson Reid, Extension Vegetable Specialist with the Cornell Vegetable Program, will be the leader of this interactive workshop. He has worked for Cornell Cooperative Extension for several years, and focuses on cultural practices, small farm operations, and season extension techniques through his work.

This event is part of the 2016-2017 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Program is made possible through the generous support of the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Series is open to beginning farmers, established farms looking to diversify and grow, agriculture enthusiasts, homesteaders, and EVERYONE in between!
