NIXON — The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension is hosting a demonstration construction workshop Saturday on the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation. The morning will begin with presentations on hoop house management and crops, followed by identifying materials, tools and costs associated with the construction of the unit. Immediately after lunch, actual construction of a 14 x 84 hoop house structure will take place. The location of the workshop will be at the Pyramid Lake Tribal Chambers, 208 Capitol Hill, Nixon, NV 89424.
“The goals of this workshop include providing education and information for season extension growing, providing fresh vegetables for reservation families and communities, and to create an opportunity for reservation residents to establish a small farming business that would sell locally grown produce to local people and businesses in the area,” said Randy Emm, native programs coordinator for Cooperative Extension.
There is no charge for the workshop. RSVP with Kathy Frazier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
