Permalink High Tunnel Workshop Series and Low Tunnel Giveaway Planned in Kansas

The Kansas Rural Center's three upcoming Tunnel to Table workshops will offer experienced and beginning vegetable and fruit growers critical information on applying polytunnels – such as high tunnels and low tunnels – as strategic tools for Kansas farms. Workshop participants who register by August 26, 2014, may apply to receive a free low tunnel. Early-bird workshop registrants are eligible to apply to receive approximately 500 square feet of free low tunnel infrastructure, valued at around $200. Nine workshop participants will go home with custom-bent metal hoops, a 10'x 100' roll of 6-mil greenhouse plastic, and row cover (insect barrier) to provide a physical barrier, protecting crops from insect damage. Workshops will take place in August, September, and October and will include farm tours.
