You will soon see the outline of Central School's hoop house when the foundation is built on the next work day. But what is a hoop house? Here is an image of a hoop house at an organic farm. Our hoop house will be 25 ft long, 10 feet wide and 8 feet tall. Using measuring tape, a meter stick or a ruler, try measuring a space 25 by 10 feet in your backyard or playground to get an idea of how big the space is. We'll be able to grow quite a few different kinds of vegetables in that space!
Here is a video that describes a hoop house and how it helps plants grow, even in the winter!
