Throughout the hot Arizona summer the High Tunnel Greenhouse was covered with a lightweight ‘Aluminet” shade cloth.

Nate Hodgson is taking care of planting and harvesting, as well as daily chores in the greenhouse. Most of all Nate has put together the ventilation and watering system. Here he reads up on greenhouse lore.

Harvest from the greenhouse has been a wonderful addition to the public cafe menu, as well to for the residents of Arcosanti. Organic tomatoes, salad greens, chard, melons, cucumbers and basil have been the main items.

As fall has started the shade cloth is removed and will be stored until the beginning of summer next year. Here we see Nate in the back, Dave Tollas and workshop participant Matt Cornwell. Matt has been working with Nate throughout his workshop to learn all about this greenhouse.
