Hoop House Construction Workshop

Location: Gutierrez-Hubble House 6029 Isleta Blvd.

Cost: Free

In this hands on workshop, we will construct a 17′ x 32′ hoop house designed to extend the harvest at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House historic farm. The finished project will be a part of the farm tour at the Local Food Festival and Field Day and will be used to grow fresh vegetables during the winter months for area food banks.

Watch a video of a similar project to see what we’ll be doing here: http://extension.nmsu.edu/greenhouse.html

This workshop is completely hands on and therefore space is limited!

Please RSVP for one of the following shifts if you would like to help with construction:

shift  A  9:00am  –  12:30pm    or

shift  B   1:00pm  –  4:30pm.

Participants are asked to bring sun protection, water and a sack lunch. Some snacks provided.
