Season Extension: Cold Frames & Hoop Houses
Greater Seacoast Permaculture Group
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!
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!

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