Season Extension: Cold Frames & Hoop Houses, August 18

Season Extension: Cold Frames & Hoop Houses
Greater Seacoast Permaculture Group
Barrington, NH
Saturday, August 18, 2012
3 – 5:30pm

Join Dave Homa as we learn how to construct a hinged hoop house and a simple cold frame to get the growing season started or extended!

Workshop details:
We’ll start with an overview of the concepts and terminology. We’ll then talk about potential structures, orientation, plant & seed selection and the planting schedule.

The rest of the class – most of it – will be spent constructing a cold frame and a hoop house. Our goal is that you leave feeling like you can go home and make one (or more) for yourself!

David Homa is a long time member of Portland Maine Permaculture and the Resilience Hub. David resides in Otisfield, Maine and does permaculture design and implementation in Southern Maine. He also is an urban farmer and permaculture educator with the Urban Farm Fermentory. David leads workshops on season extension, sheetmulching, composting, fruit tree pruning, polycultures, and medicinal teas.

This is a 2 1/2 hour hands-on workshop, and we’ll be outside, so dress appropriately.

The cost for this skill-share is $10 – $25 sliding scale, payable at the workshop.
