Just because winter is on the way doesn’t mean you have to stop growing your own food! Even in our northern Utah climate, we can grow fresh, healthy crops in our gardens throughout the winter. You can also use these same structures (particularly the hoop houses) during other parts of the year for other purposes. For instance, use your structure to get a jump on spring planting, or use your hoop house to cover sensitive spring crops with 50% shade cloth as the days of June get hotter, so you get a longer pea or lettuce harvest.

In this class, you’ll learn how to extend your “typical” summer growing season in both directions so you can utilize your existing gardening space to grow more food and grow during more months of the year.

Together in this hands-on working lab, we’ll construct a simple hoop house and tour other examples in the garden to see how they’re constructed, discussing their pro’s and con’s.
