$2,500 — Frasier Firs
Because of this grant “I will be able to control the climate to make my greenhouse productive and more profitable year round.” ~ Dickie Jarret
Dickie Jarret has created a radiant heating system for the floor of his greenhouse in addition to installing lights to extend his nursery’s growing season. With the help from his local NC Cooperative Extension agent Jerry Moody, in Avery County, Dickie Jarret will raise frasier fur seedlings to meet growing market demands.
Expected income from this project in next two years is $12,000.
