Tis the season of winter growing. Are you interested in learning more about farming in the cold season in Virginia? In this webinar you will hear from Chris Mullins, a greenhouse and specialty crops extension agent at VSU, who will provide an overview of high tunnel growing. Then Susan Hill of Hill Farm in Louisa County will take you on a tour of her high tunnels where she will share management techniques and tips for growing through the cold season. Chris and Susan will then be available to answer questions.
