WARSAW, N.Y. — Come learn the basics of how high tunnels work to help grow crops throughout the year. We will focus on crops grown in the tunnels during the colder months. Whether you want to get an early start in the spring, grow later into the fall, or even keep cold hardy plants alive throughout the winter, this session will have information you need. We will meet inside the building and then take a short walk out to the on-site high tunnel. The session will be primarily outdoors in the high tunnel, so please dress for the weather. If you arrive late and would like to catch up with the group, the high tunnel is south of the building perpendicular to the large white barn.
