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.
