2019 Extending the Season: Cold Frames and Low Tunnels

 Registration is closed for this event

Just because winter is on the way doesn't mean you have to stop growing your own food!  Even in our northern Utah climate, we can grow fresh, healthy crops in our gardens throughout the winter.  You can have delicious turnips and Swiss chard for the holidays, salad greens and root crops throughout January and February, and be eating freshly-harvested carrots when others are just thinking about sowing their spring crops!  It's all about selecting the rights crops and varieties, planting at the right time to maximize growth, and providing your crops with the kinds of protection from the elements that they need to survive our winters.  

Come join us as we tour the Grateful Tomato Garden and learn the differences between cold frames and low-tunnel hoop houses.  We'll construct a simple hoop house together and tour other examples in the garden.  Growing your own veggies during the late fall, winter and into next spring is a whole new frontier for many home gardeners, and it's incredibly satisfying.  We hope you join us for this fun and hands-on workshop!
