Episode 64. High Tunnels and the NRCS

In this episode, Andrew Coggins, an agriculture specialist with  NCAT’s ATTRA, the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service, at NCAT’s headquarters in Butte, Montana, talks about the process NCAT followed to build two new high tunnels on its SIFT demonstration farm at the Butte office. The high tunnels were supported in part by a grant from the USDA NRCS’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQUIP).
