From “Tunnel to Table” – A Project of the Kansas Rural Center
A new Kansas Rural Center project will help Kansas farmers evaluate polytunnel options that would assist them in expanding specialty crop production on their farms. The KRC “Tunnel to Table” project will produce a resource guide, decision-making tool, and regional workshop series, which will take place throughout the 2014 growing season. A Specialty Crop Block grant awarded by the Kansas Department of Agriculture will provide support for the project.
The Kansas Rural Center’s “Tunnel to Table” project is designed to help Kansas farmers evaluate polytunnel (ex: high or low tunnel) options that would assist them in expanding specialty crop production on their farms. During the 2014 growing season, KRC will hold regional Tunnel to Table workshops across Kansas and will develop and release a resource guide and decision-making tool for farms.
