With 10 ambitious volunteers (CSA members/friends/family), we raised the hoop house! The hoop house will work as our green house, keeping the young seedlings happy while they growand prepare for their new adventure out in the fields. The hoop house may also become home to cherry tomato and pepper plants this summer.
What a great event! Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a success!
Before and after raising the hoop house, Kim and Rachel spread leaves (gathered from St. Charles community) on to our fields. Incorporating the leaves into the soil increases the organic matter and beneficial microbial activity. The leaves will continue to feed the soil throughout the season as the leaves further breakdown.
