Rimol Greenhouses Donates Rolling Thunder Greenhouse to UNH Cooperative Extension

Durham, NH (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

Those attending the Summer Twilight Meeting at UNH’s Woodman Horticultural Farm enjoyed a firsthand look at the recently-donated Rolling Thunder greenhouse, complements of Rimol Greenhouse Systems. Local growers took part in informational tours and learned about sustainable food practices.

Giving back to the industry that supports Rimol is something the greenhouse manufacturer has committed to. For worthy recipients such as UNH, the Rolling Thunder greenhouse proves to be an ideal solution for sustainable agricultural practices. Reactions to the event were positive, as company owner Bob Rimol addressed guests on the importance of extended-season farming.

“I certainly expect that everyone was intrigued and the information was of significant interest to them,” said Jon Wraith, Dean of the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture. “There is a national trend. It varies, but most universities are moving toward the direction of sustainable growing.”

Rimol Greenhouses, based in Hooksett, NH, has also donated high tunnels to other universities including the University of Vermont, Ohio State University, and West Virginia University Cooperative Extension. Bob Rimol’s vision for giving back to local growers across the United States is what sparked Rimol’s recent high tunnel donations.

“Donating a moveable high tunnel to UNH was very important to us,” says Rimol, President of Rimol Greenhouse Systems. “It serves as both a resource for crop research and a state-of-the-art classroom for teaching new growing methods.”

Many expect the high tunnel, erected in June of this year, to give students (graduate and undergraduate), professors, and local farmers a chance to research intensive cropping methods. With cultivation available for up to three 30’ x 48’ plots, those involved now have the chance to experience sustainable growing practices that were previously unavailable.

“The greenhouse provides us the opportunity through this unique facility for research and outreach in areas of multi-cropping and seasonal extension,” Wraith said. “Being able to grow on a small piece of land is critical to having locally-sustainable foods.”

UNH Cooperative Extension professor Becky Sideman, the university’s specialist in sustainable horticulture, sees the high tunnel as a significant advantage moving forward.

“The moveable high tunnel is a great educational component for my work with growers,” Sideman recently said. “With the use of a moveable high tunnel, farmers may not have to make the choice to pull their profitable tomatoes out of the greenhouse early in order to start planting winter greens on time.”

This fall, organic farming specialist Clara Coleman will showcase Woodman Farm’s moveable high tunnel to encourage four-season growing in the New England region. Wraith, Sideman, and the entire UNH agricultural unit are beginning to see what Rimol’s specially-designed greenhouses can do for spreading the word on sustainable living.

“The university and the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station are extremely grateful for Rimol Greenhouses,” Wraith said. “Having that facility opens up possibilities we never had before.”

About Rimol Greenhouse Systems:
In 1994, Bob Rimol, owner of Rimol Greenhouse Systems, decided to leave his home state of New Jersey and relocate with his young family to New Hampshire. Bob began working as a greenhouse manufacturer’s representative specializing in structures and systems. However, he soon realized the need to “build a better mousetrap” and set out to customize greenhouse technology in order to better suit the needs of his customers. Bob then founded Rimol Greenhouse Systems in order to provide innovative and quality greenhouse technology for local growers.

Rimol Greenhouse Systems has since developed a number of free-standing greenhouses, benches and an entire line of products to complement the greenhouse structures. Other structures include the movable The Rolling Thunder™, high tunnels, and hydroponic systems. All Rimol Greenhouses are designed to be economical, yet rugged enough to handle the harshest snow and wind conditions experienced in New England and many other regions of the country.

Today, Rimol Greenhouse Systems has become a major greenhouse manufacturing company and has developed a brand name synonymous with quality. Although the company has grown and expanded, Rimol Greenhouse Systems still ensures that it is meeting the individual needs of every customer. Rimol products can be found all across the United States.
