Cara Coad from Longmont, Colorado, USA

In this week’s edition of the Planta Greenhouse Hopping Project, we travelled to meet Cara Coad in the beautiful Longmont, Colorado, USA – planting zone 4.

Learn all about how Cara’s Planta Sungrow 20 Greenhouse has helped extend her growing season and protect her plants from strong winds, extreme weather and wild animals in her area.

Cara also shares her unique gardening tips, like creating insulated planter boxes, using the Hugelkultur growing method, the creative ways she retains heat in the greenhouse throughout the winter, and much more.
