Learn to Grow Better in High Tunnels

By Luke Gran

On Dec-27, 2011 77 folks from across the midwest tuned into the PFI Farminar led by Adam Montri and Ann Franzenburg to learn about how to grow better local food in high tunnels.

Adam shared his years of experience growing in the northern climates near Bath, MI while Ann Franzenburg asked 10 questions of top concern to her production in high tunnels. Answers provided include: What crops work best in high tunnels, what time of year should crops be planted to thrive in high tunnels, and more!
