Winter Harvest Greenhouse Fieldtrip

April 21, 2007
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Western Mountains Alliance has supported the Marbles Family Farm in its 
greenhouse development for the past year. The Marbles planted greens in 
August in two low-cost, unheated hoop houses and harvested into January. 
Second planting was in February (yes, February when night temps rarely got 
above zero!) and the harvest is beginning now. Come see the results.  John 
Pino, of Mooarhill Farm in Mt. Vernon, has coordinated the project and will 
be on hand to explain the process, and the economics, of off-season greens 
production. For more info or to RSVP contact Tricia Cook at 778-3885 or 
e-mail tcook at westernmountainsalliance.org.
Sponsored by Western Mountains Alliance in partnership with Maine 
Alternative Agriculture Association with special thanks to  the Marble 
Family Farm.
