Hoop House Building and Seed Starting

Have a look at the hoop house building process that took place on the United Peoples’ Farm last month. From digging the initial trench to building a homemade “Tunnel Bender” and wrestling the bows into their ground posts, farmers, volunteers and interns worked together to erect the farm’s crucial hoop houses. Some of the images from this project:

Now we have one hoop house up and two more in the works.  With this first one up, our first seeds have been started and the farmers are learning different techniques, soil mixtures and seeds.
