Farming Workshop: Spring Greenhouse Production, Massachusetts

Join the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project on March 29th, 2012 at 5:00 pm for a workshop on Spring Greenhouse Production. The training will be held at the Ogonowski Fields, 126 Jones Ave., Dracut, Massachusetts.   Can you believe it's already springtime again?  That winter barely seemed real.  Though this winter has been warmer than most, many New England crops will still get a valuable head start if they are planted first in a greenhouse or hoophouse. Join New Entry in the fields this coming Thursday and learn how to plan your greenhouse crops to maximize space and growing time inside the hoop house and outside on the fields.  Together we will learn about crop planning, planting, and potting mixes inside the greenhouse.
