In partnership with Lincoln Land Community College, genHkids has helped to develop and work a high tunnel garden in the community garden on the LLCC campus.  The tunnel, located behind Montgomery Hall, allows for an extended growing season, with vegetables being produced from about March to December.

 

In addition to growing produce at the site, genHkids hosts weekly sessions throughout the fall including hands-on demonstration and exercises and teaching about growing produce year-round. Gardeners can expect to learn about planting schedules, optimal planting techniques for weed reduction and space maximization, high tunnel and low tunnel technologies, pest and disease management issues specific to winter growing, and more.
