How would you like grow your own vegetables ten months out of the year, right here in the North Country? It’s not a pipe dream. Just ask Marshall Helmberger, publisher of the Timberjay Newspaper, who built his own solar greenhouse in 2014. Imagine your planting season starting March 1 and the harvest running from mid-April through Christmas each year…And doing it with minimal supplemental heating, relying almost entirely on the sun and heat storage. Join us for a basic how-to that will have you itching to get your hands in the (unfrozen) dirt.
