Love gardening but hate the winter down-time? Foundation Farm in Eureka Springs is offering two workshops next month that could ensure year-round crops for your garden plot. These workshops not only share what sort of things you can grow during the winter months, they also show you how to build the structure in which to grow said crops.
On Saturday, December 5th, there will be a class on Low Cost Hoop-House Construction. Participants will receive hands-on instruction in how to build a 100' hoop house complete with plastic covering. Workshop starts at 10 a.m.; lunch is provided and the cost is $50 per person or $60 per household.
A followup class, Hoop-House Year Round Production Overview, will be held Saturday, December 19th. It'll cover crop choices, time tables, income potential and how much the project costs. This workshop will run 1-3:30 p.m. and is $35 per household.
