Winter High Tunnel Production Webinar

Here is information about a webinar that may be of interest to some of you. It is being led by Stacey Cooper, one of our gardeners.

July 23, 2020, 1:00-2:30PM, Webinar Workshop on Exploring Winter Production in High Tunnels in the North Country 

UNH Cooperative extension and NH Natural Resources Conservation Service are co-hosting a virtual webinar on winter vegetable production, in collaboration with the Grafton Country Conservation District.  The webinar will be led by Heather Bryant, NH Extension  Fruit and Vegetable Production Specialist, and Stacey Cooper, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Soil Conservationist (and a Hanover Community Gardener).
The challenges of 2020 have generated new interest in locally grown food, and supporting local agriculture.  With a season-extending high tunnel, many vegetables can be grown throughout the winter.  It all starts with good information and a good plan.  Heather and Stacey will discuss preparation, plant selection, starting seedlings, transplanting, row covers and tools.  Heather will share the results of an overwintering trial conducted in low tunnels.  There will be plenty of time for discussion, questions and where to find assistance. 

There is no charge to participate in the webinar, but registration is required.  Please email Pam at: or call 603- 353-4652, ext 103 and leave your email address for registration link, or register here.

Garden Clean-Up

Greetings Gardeners,

It’s that time again.  Tomorrow, Sunday, November 13th at 9:00 am we will take down the fences, roll up the hoses and put the gardens to bed. The forecast looks reasonably warm. As you prepare your plot for next season, please remember that all debris should be deposited in the upper garden compost pile.

If you can’t make tomorrow, but have time this afternoon, please feel free to get started.  The zip ties can be cut and the fence stakes can be pulled.

Please bring your work gloves and your 2017 garden payment: $40/full plot, $20/half – checks payable to Kathy Tefft.

See you tomorrow in the garden.
