On-Farm Workshop Growing Specialty Crops in Your Low & High Tunnels

August 18, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Join farmers Deirdre and Trey Flemming of Two Gander Farm for a tour of their organic farm, which includes 6,000 square feet of growing space under low and high tunnels used year-round. They’ll discuss the pros and cons of their tunnels, as well as how they strategically utilize the tunnels for different purposes throughout the season. You’ll also learn how Deirdre and Trey use their tunnels to grow specialty crops like ginger and turmeric that would otherwise struggle to grow in a Pennsylvania climate.

Now it its 12th season of operation, Two Gander Farm is home to 10 acres of organic vegetables, herbs, fruits, flowers, and bees. Located in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, the farm operates within a beautiful 260-acre preserve owned by the Brandywine Conservancy.
