Gullah Farmers Cooperative High Tunnel Workshop – Part 2

September 1 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

Fruit production in high tunnels is on the rise and can be a great niche product for your market. 

We’ll visit Roy Green and Simply Green Raised Garden Box on Thursday, September 1, to learn about implementing blackberry production in high tunnel and outdoor field space. Come tour his farm and ask questions about this innovative production system!

Roy Green has been gardening for over 50 years. Roy was raised on a farm and was taught at an early age the importance of growing your own fresh produce. Roy successfully completed the South Carolina Master Gardener Program through the Clemson Cooperative Extension Service. He shares a passion for growing vegetables. He would like to spread that passion to others and educate everyone on the advantages of growing your own fresh produce.

Speakers:

  • Gena Moore, CFSA – Organic Research Coordinator
  • Zack Snipes, Clemson – Cooperative Extension Area Horticulture Agent – Charleston & Beaufort Counties
  • Roy Green, Simply Green Raised Garden Box
