Springtime at the GrowHaus keeps us as busy as the pollinators!

Spring Garden Cleanup Reminders

Keep your leaves, twigs, and dandelions on your yard and in your garden until it is consistently above 50 degrees; pollinators use it as habitats and early food sources!

Itching to get your hands on plants? Now is the time to install seasonal containers or prune your shrubs!

Cole Crop Season is Here!

  • Cole Crops are from the Brassicaceae family
  • Includes broccoli, mustards, kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts

Covering the brand new High Tunnel for the 2019 season at the GrowHaus

HIGH TUNNEL HUSSLE

While 2018 was full of events and achievements, one of our biggest accomplishments was installing our new High Tunnel on our campus! Many of our team members had to pull together to make this happen for us, as you can see in the above video.

What is a High Tunnel?

High tunnels are temporary structures that extend the growing season. These structures are constructed in the field with metal or plastic piping and covered with an opaque plastic sheeting.  

What are its advantages?

  • Elevates temperature consistently and earlier in the season than nature allows
  • Protects from pests and weeds, decreasing pesticide and herbicide use
  • Shields plants from inclement weather such as hail storms and high winds 
  • Remains cheaper than building and operating a greenhouse

What about the disadvantages?

  • Difficult but not impossible to move once installed
  • No HVAC system to limit internal temperature on wickedly hot days
We are joining thousands of farmers nationwide who are creating a positive impact using this rather recent technology!
Want a say in what we are growing in our new High Tunnel?
