ATTRA is offering a free download of its new publication by NCAT Specialist Chris Lent High Tunnels In Urban Agriculture. The publication identifies the unique benefits of high tunnels to urban farmers and addresses a number of issues, including the basics of siting and constructing a high tunnel and some of the policy and zoning challenges urban growers face when planning to erect a tunnel.

High tunnel management, including soil fertility, irrigation, and disease and pest control are covered and resources on intensive crop production and other uses for high tunnels are provided.
