Volunteers Needed, Saturday April 12th

Please join us as we  equip the five high tunnels with a rainwater catchment system that includes rain gutters and water tanks.  Farm Production Specialist, Anthony Munene, has requested a group of volunteers to help install the gutters on Saturday, April 12th.  Never been to the farm in Dunbarton? Now’s your chance!

This rainwater catchment project is funded by the Natural Resource Conservation Services’ Conservation Innovation Grant.  Not only will rainwater provide most of the irrigation needs for the tunnel, the rain gutters will prevent soil erosion along the edges of the structures from runoff.  Additionally, we will be utilizing solar panels to pump the water from the outdoor reservoirs, through our drip irrigation system!  For more information on this volunteer opportunity, or about the CIG grant, contact freshstartfarmsnh@gmail.com
