YNDC Hosts Greenhouse Building Workshop

Monday, April 17, 2017

On April 15, Farm Manager Corey Maizel taught a class on building hoophouses. Over 30 people participated in the workshop, which focused on affordable season extension. The class built a simple 10' x 20' hoophouse with a cost of around $250. Hoophouses can allow for year-round harvest of greens and provide a great environment for early fruiting crops, such as peppers and tomatoes. They are also great environments to start seeds without having to purchase costly lights or other equipment.
