The supports for our six additional hoop houses are being assembled on-site.
The construction crews have started digging the footings for the HDFI hoop houses! Construction is due to be completed by the end of June.
As a requirement for the grant received for the High Desert Farming Initiative, an extensive environmental impact study is performed on the acre of land next to UNR’s campus.
The site of the High Desert Farming Initiative started with two hoop houses located on UNR’s Valley Road Farm Laboratory. After confirmation of funding for construction, these two units can be renovated and construction on multiple hoop houses can be planned.
