This Wednesday the 23 we will be holding our Winter Garden Event!
As a continuation of our extended winter growing season experimentation we will be transplanting some of our seedlings to the Gould and Children’s Gardens, and setting up garden hoops to protect the plants over the winter. Garden hoops are essentially greenhouses that help retain some heat from the sun during the winter, and let the plants grow continue growing, albeit a little more slowly.

We have purchased the materials needed to install our own (PVC tubing and plastic sheeting), and will be planting Swiss Chard, Kale, and Rapini! We are only going to make 4 hoops, and hopefully they will be a success!
