What an amazing weekend of community, hard work, good food, bonfire relaxing, and, by the end of the day Sunday, a nearly complete hoop house. Want to see how it all comes together??
At the end of the first day, the hoop was all ready for the next day end wall construction. The end walls are made using a sturdy plastic that is a bit fussy to work with. It takes nearly as long to build and install the two end walls as it does to put the bow parts together and install them.
We had such an amazing crew of volunteers for this build. Over the course of the weekend, there were nearly 50 people who played a role in getting this lovely hoop standing and ready for it’s plastic cover.
A huge thank you and appreciation to:

There is nothing quite like the magic of watching a hoop come to life with the steady enthusiasm and hard work of a community of people invested in creating opportunities to grow good, healthy, fresh food available to everyone. Please join us for our next builds in May.
