High Tunnel Construction and Strawberry Planting

06/18/2018 11:39 AM | James Buratti TOFGA Secretary (Administrator)

It’s a modern day barnraising! If you weren’t able to make it to Day 1 of our exciting and informative greenhouse and strawberry growing workshop, don’t fret. There are still two days left to get your hands dirty and learn all about high tunnel construction, farm loans and grant opportunities, strawberry production, and more, all in the DFW area.

Day 1 included site selection, layout, high tunnel selection, equipment check in, post setting, and NRCS programs including EQUIP High Tunnel contract. You don’t need to have been there to enjoy the other two days!

Day 2 (Tuesday, June 19th) will include erecting the hoops, sides, end walls, doors, and side rollup assembly, along with a discussion on ways to finance your down payment. Register here

Day 3 (Tuesday, June 26th) will feature final assembly of the greenhouse, skin and shade cloth, strawberry soil preparation, and strawberry variety selection. Register here.
