Using high-tunnel structures to improve food crop production in Revelstoke

These resources detail the process and findings from an applied research project studying the use of high-tunnel greenhouses in Revelstoke.

The 2.5-year project evaluated:

  • The ability of high-tunnel greenhouses to withstand snow load and temperature variations
  • Which salad green varieties may be viable under low light/low temperature conditions
  • The differences between single- and double-layered high-tunnel greenhouse structures
