Rutgers Cooperative Extension High Tunnel Ribbon Cutting
July 8, 2019

The Ribbon cuttingCounty of Passaic has opened a new Rutgers Cooperative Extension teaching and demonstration site at Preakness Valley Golf Course. This site includes a high tunnel, which is similar to a greenhouse and provides the opportunity to extend the growing season, by growing earlier into the spring and later into the fall, while protecting crops from excessive rain, wind, sun, cold, and in many cases from wildlife damage. 

This urban project will play an important role in the training curriculum of the Rutgers Master Gardener Program of Passaic County by providing an appropriate space for hands-on learning.

The high tunnel was funded through a grant by the National Association of Conservation Districts under the Urban Agriculture Conservation Initiative. Rutgers Cooperative Extension partnered with the Hudson, Essex, and Passaic Soil Conservation District to apply for this grant. Learn more about this project on our news page
