About This Cause

I am a Boy Scout in New City, New York, and I am currently working, along with the members of Troop 97, on my Eagle project. My goal is to construct a working Hoop House for Cropsey Community Farm. Cropsey Community Farm is a non-profit farm, which is an historic inter-municipal collaboration, and is the first tangible step toward developing a local foodshed in Rockland County. Cropsey Community Farm is a project of the Rockland Farm Alliance, Inc. (RFA), a 501(c)(3) organization. Their web site is http://rocklandfarm.org/ .
A hoop house is a relatively inexpensive type of greenhouse which allows for longer growing seasons, starter plantings and delicate plantings that can’t be grown outdoors. It is constructed using a frame made of steel pipe “hoops” and covered with two layers of a thick plastic skin. A hoop house is particularly valuable to Cropsey Community Farm because it will allow food to be grown at the farm year round and will help keep sustainable agriculture alive in Rockland County by allowing the farm to derive more revenue to help maintain production and teach sustainable farming to community members.
I need to raise approximately $2,800 for materials and supplies in order to complete this 96 foot long hoop house and would greatly appreciate any help you could give. All donations go to Rockland Farm Alliance, Inc. and are tax deductible. Should I be lucky enough to raise more than what is required to build a hoop house, the balance will go to RFA for other projects.
Thank you for all of your help.

    The Saturday after Thanksgiving was cold and clear. The wind had calmed down enough so we could put the plastic on the hoop house. Thanks to all of the people who showed up, we were able to cover the entire length of the hoop house with plastic, as well as the end walls. It looks great. Doors and finishing touches are next. Thank you everyone from Troop 97 who came out over the Thanksgiving break. Thank you to all of the donors. We wouldn't have been able to get this far this without you.

    The temperature was a blustery twenty degrees this morning. I can't believe so many people braved the elements to work on the hoop house. It was an incredibly productive work day. We finished installing the hardware cloth and wire lock. We even finished putting the wire lock on the end hoops. Next work day....we're "pulling the plastic." Thank you all.

    We are continuing to work to build this hoop house. The purlins are fastened, the hoops are all aligned and the hardware cloth is going in. There has been so much work done by the members of Troop 97. The plastic, blower, heater and other parts are due in this week. Thank you all.
