Green Edge Organic Gardens is a family owned certified organic farm in Amesville, Ohio. The farm is dedicated to producing the highest quality certified organic produce on 120 acres of rolling hills and fertile bottomland that is tended primarily by hand. Their innovative use of high tunnel greenhouses and grow rooms ensure a year-round selection of seasonal vegetables, micro greens and specialty mushrooms and has extended their growing season to include a fourth winter period. Their 100% certified organic produce is available to both wholesale and retail customers.
This workshop will present the Green Edge season extension model to participants interested in creating their own fourth growing season through the use of high tunnel greenhouses and cover systems to allow for extended crop production. The cost for attendance is $25 and includes written materials as well as a locally sourced lunch during the midday break. The workshop is sponsored by Rural Action Sustainable Agriculture with support from the Athens Foundation.
Green Edge Organic Gardens is located at 16232 Henry Road in Amesville, Ohio, just to the northeast of Athens.
