High Tunnel Construction Workshop: Event for Veterans

This event is perfect for veterans who want to learn about high tunnels and their benefits. Farmer veteran James Turrell is inviting fellow veterans to his farm to teach them about high tunnel basics. Participants will work together to put plastic on James’ high tunnel and learn about season extension, plant protection from extreme weather, and disease and insect prevention. After lunch, James will discuss options for end walls, ventilation, irrigation, what to plant, and how high tunnels have impacted his farm business.
