FBPam, our Garden Manager for over 20 years still works in our 3.5 acre organic garden but has retired as manager. That gave her more time to write this, her second book.

The focus of this book is guiding people in designing and building a hoophouse and making a success of growing abundant, delicious fresh produce all year, whatever your climate and land size. This book draws on Pam's experience with our garden crew constructing our own hoophouse in 2003, and from talking with other hoophouse growers and visiting their farms.
