LOW TUNNELS FOR SEASON EXTENSION –AND MORE By Gordon Clark, UVM Extension Master Gardener
Low tunnels are the contemporary version of the “cold boxes,” made out of windows and wood frames, which older generation gardeners used to start plants early in the season. They are also every bit as good for extending your season well into the fall and early winter – even in Vermont.
If you’d like to learn how to build a low tunnel, the University of Vermont Extension Master Gardener Program is offering a free hands-on workshop on Aug. 16 at the Yellow Barn Community Garden in Arlington (http://go.uvm.edu/emg-lowtunnel-aug16).
We need at least 15 attendees registered to entice a Burlington gardener to make the trek. If you know of someone who would be interested please encourage them to register and attend.
