RainFresh Harvests Open Greenhouse Tour

RainFresh Harvests is hosting an open house for people wishing to tour their greenhouse. The event is free and open to the public. Let's get a group together to meet and see their facilities! We'll plan on meeting there at 1:00 -- if you would like to carpool, please use the discussion board below to coordinate.

According to the website, their growing facilities include:

- RainFresh Bio-Integrated Greenhouse
- Passive Solar Greenhouse
- Aquaculture pond
- Biolntensive field crops

"BioIntensive Field Crops — raised beds to grow fresh herbs, specialty vegetables and berries. We use sustainable agricultural practices that include organic fertilizers, biocontrols, crop rotation, pastures and cover crops for organic matter production to grow wholesome foods in a responsible manner.

Green Growing practices regenerate the soil and preserve natural resources. Our crops are grown using organic fertilizers and biological controls. Water and nutrients are used efficiently. We collect rainwater and grow year-round greenhouse crops using aquaponics. Organic matter is recycled by vermicomposting where red worms not only provide superior, nutrient-rich growing media but also serve as food for the poultry and fish production"

For more information and to get directions, please visit the website: http://www.rainfreshharvests.com/

    It was great--I had my 5 year old with me, so wasn't able to get as engaged as I would have liked, but Barry Adler has an amazing operation. The information I did hear was very helpful and he an his family are so generous--the best possible advocates for sustainable and innovative bio-integrated growing processes. This was very inspiring!

    I have been to this greenhouse 3 times, going back to see what is new. It's always fun and educational.
