  8:00AM 5:00PM High Tunnel Build Workshop   Lincoln Land Community College’s Green Center is holding a high tunnel build workshop Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free two-day workshop is being held in the community garden behind the Workforce Careers Center on the LLCC-Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road. Participants in the workshop will assist in erecting a 30-foot x 48-foot movable high tunnel (greenhouse) on V-track, in addition to learning about season extension growing practices. The workshop is being led by Four Season Tools. The nationally recognized company builds year-round organic vegetable farms, specializing in constructing high tunnels and educating individuals about season extension for economic viability of small-scale sustainable farms. Farmers, representatives from schools and universities, community garden leaders, and other individuals wanting to learn about growing food year-round are invited to learn more about high tunnels. High tunnel greenhouses can increase crop profits by improving yields and extending the growing season. Additionally, high tunnel greenhouses can provide more crop protection from weather, diseases and pests than field grown crops. Partial day participation is welcome. For more information or to register, contact Marnie Record at 786-4993.
