Federal Hoop Houses
First of all, I think high tunnels, or hoop houses are cool. They are a cost effective way for small time folks to extend their growing season. But, should the government be spending money on this? What really bugs me is the descrimination. For poor farmers, the government will pick up half the tab to build a hoop house. If you are a minority, you get 80-100%. How about we just don't use tax money for this. What is your opinion?
