For the December 2023 Ask an Expert webinar, Rebecca Kutzer-Rice of Moonshot Farm will present on the recent installation of a geothermal heating system in a greenhouse on her cut flower farm. Rebecca will provide an overview of the funding, installation, and maintenance associated with the new greenhouse, and share recommendations for starting the process on other farms. She will also discuss tax credits and grant opportunities available to cut flower farmers who are also interested in exploring this option.
Rebecca and Mark are a husband-wife team keen on bringing beauty to their community! After over a decade of living in NYC, they left behind their urban lives to start their dream farm. They focus on growing cut flowers in a sustainable, bee-friendly way, and while not currently USDA organic certified, their flowers are grown utilizing organic practices and without harsh pesticides or herbicides.
