NEVERSINK ORGANIC FARM

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County Greenhouse High Tunnel Tour

CLARYVILLE, NY— An educational tour of high tunnel and greenhouse agricultural production practices is offered on Monday, August 3, 2015. Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) will offer this program from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at Neversink Farm on 635 Claryville Road in Claryville. Neversink Farm is Certified Organic by NOFA-NY Certified Organic LLC.

Topics on this tour will include on-farm production methods using season extension structures through observation of existing systems at Neversink Farm, accompanied by informative commentary. Educators will discuss the ways in which season extension makes it possible for some vegetables to be grown beyond their intended season and at more affordable rates. Participants will learn varying management techniques for different plants in each structure and how they are used in production circumstances.

Cost to attend is $15.00 per person or $10.00 per CCESC enrollee. Anyone can enroll in the CCESC association for an annual donation of $25.00 per household. Enrollees must identify membership status at time of payment in order to receive discounts.
