Four-Season Farming With Sunseed Farm

Wednesday May 10, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Westgate Branch: West Side Room

This event will be recorded

Tomm and Trilby Becker, owners of Sunseed Farm, present this family-friendly presentation on four-season farming.

Sunseed is a family-owned vegetable farm growing over sixty kinds of vegetables for families, restaurants, and wholesale customers. Since 2009, Sunseed Farm has grown on eighteen acres of land in Ann Arbor, five miles Northwest of downtown. Close to one of those acres are the farm's passively-heated hoop houses. Thanks to this simple technology they are able to extend their growing season right through the winter.

Find out why winter-grown vegetables are so much more delicious, peek under the covers of their snowy farm and see thousands of happy green plants, discover the secrets to growing a bounty of vegetables and flowers without chemicals on a small parcel of land, and find out what is happening on their busy little farm in spring!
