Workshop Description

One of the biggest challenges to Pacific Northwest gardeners is our long, chilly, wet spring that often lasts well into summer. In this DIY-focused session, learn how employing season-extending tools and structures makes it easy to warm things up so you can cultivate all sorts of plants successfully – edibles and otherwise. Garden Mentors®’ Robin Haglund will provide her firsthand accounts plus a hands-on opportunity to explore many choices available — from single-plant cloches to small urban greenhouses (and everything in between.) Whether you prefer to recycle used plastics, construct a movable DIY tunnel house, build a cold frame, or just want to learn more about designing a smart urban farm that incorporates these elements, this session is for you!
