The first of six high tunnel workshops will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. June 27 at the Farm Credit Services offices in Mandan.
These workshops, hosted by the Entrepreneurial Center for Horticulture at Dakota College at Bottineau in conjunction with the North Dakota Natural Resources Conservation Service, will assist those wishing to begin or expand production of vegetables, fruits and specialty crops in high tunnels with construction and production techniques. The workshops are free and open to the public.
Holly Mawby, ECH director, and Keith Knudson, a faculty member of Dakota College at Bottineau Specialty Crop Production, will be presenting. Each workshop will include a tour of a local producer high tunnel location and plenty of time for questions.
Two other beginning level workshops will be held in Watford City and Bottineau in July. The advanced level workshops will be held between July 23 and Aug. 10 in Bottineau, Minot and a location to be determined. Participants must RSVP their attendance to ensure enough resource materials for everyone.
