Tim and Katherine Clymer, owners of Threefold Farm in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, will lead this workshop. Threefold Farm is a transitional organic orchard specializing in unusual fruits. The concept behind a climate battery greenhouse is to use the earth beneath as a sort of “thermal battery” for storing excess heat generated by the structure. Presenters will go over the design and structure of their 2 commercial-sized climate battery greenhouses; the results of a Penn State University study of the results of lessons learned in the first 2 years of operation, including temperature results; and the farm’s future plans and areas for improvement. Cost is $20/person, please prepay online here: or call CCE Schuyler at 607.535.7161 to register by phone. Questions?
