Instead of scaling up in size, increase your number of sales days per year and take advantage of the high demand for local winter produce.

Eliot Coleman has been growing year-round in Maine for 40+ years. Ohio is warmer with longer days — year-round vegetable production is absolutely possible here! Lisa Helm has been growing vegetables year-round in downtown Dayton, Ohio for five seasons now using unheated DIY hoophouses and low tunnels. She will discuss DIY infrastructure, growing techniques, resources and plant varieties collected from over 8 year-round vegetable farms to help you feel confident to start your own winter production.

Starting a vegetable farm can be very expensive but some easy DIY projects can cut your costs significantly. Lisa Helm will share practical tricks she's picked up from her experience founding the community garden and art park, Garden Station, and the Dayton Urban Grown incubator and training farm.

Learn how to build a hoophouse with parts from a big box hardware store for one-third the cost of a kit, a food-safe DIY salad spinner with more capacity than a commercial hand crank model at a fraction of the cost, a germination chamber, a wash-pack station, nursery components, and more.

Mentor, Ohio 

Saturday, April 20, 2024
10 a.m.

Open/Close

Join a Lake Effect farm tour April 20 at 10 a.m. at the A's and O's Farm in Mentor, Ohio! See examples of no-till mulch farming, solar water pumping, deer and rabbit pest protection techniques, and learn how they (mostly) managed the dozens of human pests surrounding the farm's 4.5-acre urban lot. The half-acre of organic field production includes asparagus, snap peas, beans, and sweet potatoes, but mostly is dedicated to fruit producing perennials. The organic asparagus field should be in full production by then so you can pick a meal's worth to take home, plus some composted wood chips for your own field or garden.

The field is located one driveway west of 7627 Lake Shore Blvd., Mentor, OH 44060 (watch for the farm tour signs on Lake Shore Blvd.). The rain date will be April 21.
