The market for fresh vegetables doesn’t stop when outdoor production becomes impossible. Puget Sound consumers still want healthy fresh salad-greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and more, making year-round regionally based greenhouse production cost-effective and profitable once again.
Join Washington State University Snohomish County Extension on Saturday, Mar. 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a visit and tour of Dominion Organics, a certified organic greenhouse operation. Dominion Organics is located at 7110 Enterprise Road in Ferndale. Bring a brown bag lunch and a small lawn or camping chair for a lunchtime picnic in the greenhouse.
Owner/operator Blair McHenry, an organic grower and consultant to the British Columbia hothouse industry for more than 25 years, will lead the tour. He will lead a discussion on topics including greenhouse structures, heating, and fertility as well as pest and disease management issues.
Space is limited and pre-registration is required. The cost is $20 per person.
