Grow It Year Round!

Summer is winding down, but that doesn't mean you have to pack up the garden and twiddle your thumbs until spring.  It is possible to grow food year round, you just need the right techniques! 

Join us on Thursday, September 9th for a season extension workshop, led by nationally-acclaimed sustainable agriculture guru, Anthony Flaccavento.   From low tunnels to high tunnels, pre-fab kits to original designs, learn strategies and crop choices to improve your yields, access new markets, and keep your garden going strong through the cold weather.  Cover cropping and soil amendments will be discussed, and you'll be able to check out the newly built 30'x72' Farm Tek high tunnel.

When: Thursday, September 9, 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Where:  Maple Hill Farm, 7129 Scottsville Rd, Scottsville, VA
How:  Free for partner producers,  $35 for general public

Please RSVP to marisa [at] or (434) 286-2176.
