In spite of a windy, wet , cold spring we’re helping build a Hoophouse –a large unheated plastic-wrapped greenhouse–from a kit for the “Incubator Farm” on this land. The hoop house can make spring and fall times of abundant fresh veggies as well as farm income rather than periods of mostly preparation and planting or harvest and decline.
The incubator farm is on land we set aside for supporting new farmers with little capital or farm equipment to get a start in the world of farming.
Damon Brangman, is one of the Incubator Farmers. To learn more about our local group for supporting new farmers and other forms of food justice, check out Groundswell and this neat article about Damon.
