Boys and Girls Club of America Partner With Cleveland Botanical Gardens to Extend Gardening Program Growing Season

Posted by Todd Alexander on

At the end of 2014 Tunnel Vision Hoops LLC was contracted to help build a High Tunnel Hoop House as a part of the Boys and Girls Club's gardening program in Cleveland, Ohio. The program was just starting out at the start of the first project, and as TVH broke ground at the Broadway Avenue location wood chips were being spread and weed suppression fabric was being un-rolled to begin the process for turning the lot into a productive educational garden.

The structure purchased by the Boys and Girls club was a 20 ft. wide x 48 ft. long TVH Gothic Structure with all of the standard wind and snow supports, as well as an upgraded sliding door for the front end of the structure. We were also fortunate enough to have someone at the Boys and Girls club time lapse record the entire installation project so that anyone could see the process for building a TVH 20 ft. x 48 ft. Gothic Structure. You can take a look at the 2:00 minute time lapse video here: Video of Gothic Structure Installation

The second structure was installed during the summer of 2015, and was identical in size and features. Each of the High Tunnel Hoop House structures were installed with a number of fold up greenhouse benches to give the gardening program at the Boys and Girls club the ability to start seeds while planting directly in the ground. We are looking forward to seeing both of the structures, as well as the beds outside of the tunnel, filled with highly nutritious crops
