Meet our new Hoop House!

The Howard Street Farm has a new addition — at the end of the growing season, Farmer Matt, Farmer Susanna and a group of great, dedicated volunteers erected a new 30′ x 72′ hoop house. The hoop house, besides looking great, will have the effect of extending our growing season. We will be able to grow more food for longer in 2017. It’s not in production yet, but it has the seal of approval from a local hawk, which stopped by during construction.
