Most greenhouses or high tunnels are constructed and stay in one place. The Rimol greenhouses or high tunnels at Roots Farm in Tiverton, RI are moved several times each year.
Roots Farm hosted a Northeast Organic Farming Association of Rhode Island (NOFA/RI) Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT) hands-on workshop called “Winter Growing with Movable Greenhouses” for nearly 50 participants.
Mike and Kelli Roberts use their movable greenhouses to raise certified organic greens and produce year-round without supplemental heat. Workshop attendees moved two 50’ by 30’ greenhouses in under ten minutes.
