Yes There are two.
Both are up and have the plastic on. Work is progressing nicely with more finishing work being done.
They are moveable, so a fall crop can be planted outside while a summer crop is growing inside. Then the high tunnel can be moved over the fall crop which is already established.
Stay tuned for more information and possible requests for help planting late and early season crops in both high tunnels.
We have received enough to purchase the string trimmer. Thank you very much!
It’s now being used at the farm and working very well. It will serve our CSA for years to come.
We actually have received more than what was needed to purchase the trimmer. We will put the rest toward another terrific tool, the Jang Seeder.
We’ve been studding the capabilities and specifications for quite a while. A local friend of Down To Earth has one (see pictures), so we got to see one close up and have their positive input as well.
We welcome donations toward this next wonderful tool.
We are looking for help (donations) to purchase this string trimmer for our CSA. We are asking for donations so we don’t impact the CSA’s limited budget for this year.
This tool is ideally suited to our need to control vegetation around and in our fields. It would also be useful as we experiment with transitioning to “no till” which involves mowing old crops and solarizing, without tilling.
The trimmer is at the farm, on consignment, so you can take a look.
Please consider supporting this project.
The CSA can accept on line donations on the webpage (under <About> <Make a Donation>
