Site preparation is arguably the most crucial point in hoophouse construction. Join The North Farm for a discussion regarding proper site preparation and considerations for hoophouses and learn about drainage, solar exposure, anchoring mechanisms, and snow load considerations. This workshop will be incredibly valuable for individuals in the planning stages of their hoophouse construction.
**Each workshop also qualifies for education hours for MSUE Master Gardeners!**
