CLARYVILLE, NY— An educational tour of high tunnel and greenhouse agricultural production practices is offered on Monday, August 3, 2015.

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.

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.
