Project Objectives

  1. Build and strengthen new and existing partnerships with organic producers and other stakeholders by involving them in project planning, brainstorming, and outcome delivery.

  2. Identify the critical stakeholder needs for organic high tunnel system research, education, and extension through a multi-state organic grower survey.

  3. Develop a multi-regional integrated project proposal on organic high tunnel vegetable production systems to address the critical stakeholder needs and priority areas for research, education, and extension identified in this planning project.

This work is supported by Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative grant no. 2016-51300-25738 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
