We successfully completed our Goal #2 objectives having hosted eight cold frame construction workshops on active farms in Stone County and surrounding counties. Host farms included: Day Gardens at Meadowcreek (Fox AR); Hermansen Gardens at Meadowcreek (Fox, AR); Feathers in the Wind Farm (Leslie, AR); Allen Berry Farm (Fox, AR); Reality Ranch (Timbo, AR); Stargap Farm (Mountain View, AR); the Ozark Folk Center (Mountain View, AR); and Ratchford Buffalo Farm (Marshall, AR).
Our cold frame construction method is simple, cost-effective and sturdy by any standards. Plus, the benefit of gathering in community with fellow farmers and gardeners provided all of us with a rich context in which to watch, learn and participate.
Following is a downloadable PDF file with step-by-step instructions for constructing our cold frame (hoop house/green house) plus diagram and supply list. In order to read the document, you’ll need a copy of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader (although most modern web browsers will display it for you without the Reader program).
