Successful hoop house production requires different growing methods than planting directly into the soil. The featured speakers, all successful Nevada farmers, will teach best practices and helpful hints for growing in Northern Nevada's climate. They bring decades of experience in building and growing crops in hoop houses. From nursery plants to exotic Hawaiian ginger, the speakers have extensive experience in all aspects of hoop house production. See the workshop flyer for details.
