Hands-On High Tunnel Construction
Garden Treasures Organic Farm
Arlington, WA
Share this event:




The market for fresh vegetables doesn't stop when outside production becomes impossible. Puget Sound consumers still want fresh salad greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, and much more. Season-extension through the use of high tunnels is one way farmers can increase not only their repertoire of produce and times of availability, but also its overall quality.

Building an inexpensive high tunnel for three-season production can be a daunting task the first time, especially if your first tunnel is used. The basics of how to prepare and square the layout, build and secure the structure are best learned from farmers that have been through the process many times.

Join us Saturday, March 1 from 9:00am to 3:00pm when we head to Garden Treasures (3328 State Route 530 NE Arlington, WA) to help them construct two three-season high-tunnels for the coming season. These are used structures, removed from a defunct nursery, now being repurposed for food production. The farm crew will be on hand leading the process and attendees are welcome to help as much or as little as they wish throughout the day.

Dress for weather and mud (we'll be building rain or shine), bring work gloves and a brown bag lunch.
Cost is $20 per person and includes a flash drive of resources on high tunnels.

Since 2005, Garden Treasures farmers Mark and Patricia Lovejoy have been growing their farm business outside Arlington. Today the farm covers 40 acres with many high tunnels and greenhouses in place to help extend their season. They market through farmers markets, a CSA program, as well as wholesale.
