Morgan Decker, Root Bottom Farm

Gothic High Tunnel
Grant Award: $8,000

Morgan will replace three deteriorating wood and PVC hoop houses with a 24′ x 92′ metal-framed gothic-style high tunnel. He will equip the tunnel with louver vents, end framing, 4′ x 7′ sliding doors, and roll-up sides. The new greenhouse will provide a larger, more stable and permanent growing space.

With a taller structure and larger opening, Morgan has the ability to drive a tractor into the high tunnel to prepare beds, resulting in a reduction of required manual labor. The larger growing space will enable him to continue indoor seed starting and expand and enhance production of tomatoes, ginger, and other crops.
