WAND Southeastern Event - The Growing Power of Hoop House Gardens
**ALL REGIONS WELCOME!**
Please join us for a tour of the Vibrant Gardens farm. Becky will begin the tour with an introduction of herself with her husband Mark and the passion & mission they have devoted their post-corporate life to. We will see the development from the beginning to the full potential still unfolding as the focus is on soil health and nutrient dense produce with high volume results using this philosophy, innovative technology and techniques.
Please bring your full attention, and readiness, to learn about potential options to the current traditional food production system.

Learning outcome will be focused on organic production, the importance of naturally supported soil fertility. The outcome of this philosophy is the high nutrient content of the produce. The value of hoop gardens allows the staging of production and variety of crops throughout the year. The objective is to understand the potential of hoop houses to grow food for people everywhere.
