About the event
Please join us to learn about how you can maximize your gardenor urban farm with a high tunnel system. A high tunnel system is an enclosed structure that is used to cover and protect crops from sun, wind, excessive rainfall, or cold, to extend the growing season in an environmentally safe manner.
Come learn how you can take advantage of USDA technical and financial resources.
During this workshop we will cover the NRCS mission, available conservation practices, program eligibility, the application process, as basic high tunnel management.
