High Tunnel Workshop

Growers will have opportunity to visit the Beahm Farm in the Hollins area of Roanoke County on October 7, 2010, and check the progress of Beahm’s high tunnel project. This is an informal, come-and-go event designed to show growers what a tunnel looks like and crops in progress. It is a great opportunity for growers considering construction of a tunnel to ask questions. Chris Mullins and Reza Raffie from VSU will be on hand to share about their experiences with tunnels and berry crops.

Please share this event announcement with your producers. There is no charge for the event and registration is not required. The event starts at 4 pm and will conclude at dark.

Thank you!
