Gardeners are invited to learn how to extend the traditional growing season with a cold-frame construction workshop at the School of Harmony in Beaver Friday from 10 a.m. to noon.
Cold-frames are enclosures designed with transparent roofs that allow plants to receive sufficient sunlight while shielding them from dangerous elements, such as excessive moisture or cold temperatures.
The workshop is being hosted by West Virginia University Extension Service.
Brad Cochran, an extension associate, said the cold-frame’s function is similar to that of a greenhouse, extending the growing season through the winter months.
“Cold-frames are a great tool that allow us to enjoy those homegrown salad greens a little later into the season or to simply get a jump start on the season to come.”
The class costs $40 and includes a cold-frame kit. Registration is required.
For more information or to register for the workshop, contact Brad Cochran at 304-541-3301 or email@example.com.
The School of Harmony is located at 159 Granby Circle in Beaver. Workshops will be rescheduled if county schools are canceled or delayed due to inclement weather.
Another class will be hosted Thursday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Barnett Center, 1524 10th Ave., Huntington.
