THE YEAR-ROUND HOOPHOUSE

THE YEAR-ROUND HOOPHOUSE

Design and build a hoophouse or polytunnel, and grow abundant produce year-round in any climate. Growing in hoophouses – also known as high tunnels or polytunnels – reduces the impact of an increasingly unpredictable climate on crops, mitigates soil erosion, extends the growing season and keeps leafy greens alive through the winter, and enables growers to supply more regional food needs.

The Year-Round Hoophouse is a comprehensive guide to designing and building a hoophouse and making a success of growing abundant, delicious fresh produce all year, whatever your climate and land size. Chapters include:

  • Hoophouse siting, size, style, frame construction, and tools
  • Bed layout, soil, crop rotations, and extensive coverage of various crops for all seasons
  • Organic solutions to pests and diseases
  • Disaster preparation
  • Tested resources for each chapter

The Year-Round Hoophouse is ideal for farmers who wish to move into protected growing, as well as beginning farmers in rural and urban spaces. It is an essential reference resource for professors and students of courses in sustainable agriculture, as well as interns and apprentices learning on the job.
