Local farmers awarded MDA Sustainable Ag Grant
A Henning couple has been awarded a grant from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) to conduct solar research on their farm.
Diane and Chuck Webb, owner-operators of Gardens Gourmet, will use the grant to research the use of solar collection and thermal storage to provide in-floor heat for vegetable production. The solar collectors will heat water and store the energy for use in two raised beds and two low beds that are 3 feet wide and 100 feet long.
