Join in for a class on how to build a hoop greenhouse for plant propagation. It’s a DIY project with PVC conduit and wood framing and polyethylene plastic covering. With the help of expert Chuck Carpenter, the approximately 20 x 48 foot greenhouse can be completed in one day. Students also learn how to build a smaller backyard model and can help out with urban farming tasks. On just ¼ acre of land, this farm produced 7,000 pounds of fresh produce for charity in less than a year. Cost: $0–20 sliding scale. Info and registration: here
