Presented to you by Vermont Community Garden Network, this webinar provides: tips from gardening expert Charlie Nardozzi on in-the-garden season extension techniques, inspiration on how to build and manage a community hoop house from Bethany Dunbar of Center for an Agricultural Economy and Hardwick Community Garden, and lessons from Olivia Brooks, Morgan Willis and Phyllis Arata-Meyers of Change the World Kids on how to start and run a root cellar.
