A hinged hoophouse for a raised garden is a great project for DIY gardeners. As the name implies, it’s basically a greenhouse-type cover—may it be plastic, fabric, or netting—placed over pipe arches that bend around a raised bed in a ‘hoop’ shape. (PS: Adding a hinge facilitate easy access to your plants).

The structure comes in handy when you want to protect your vegetables from external threats such as pest, limit weather damage (especially during cold months), and facilitate a year-long harvest.

In a video on The Gardening Channel With James Prigioni, our host walks us through the process of building a hinged hoophouse – which will hopefully set you up for a bountiful harvest. Here’s a breakdown of the video:

PLEASE NOTE: The style, dimensions, and some materials of your hinged hope house depend on the type of raised garden you have and of course, your budget.


• Greenhouse film – 6 Mil Thickness
• 4 Douglas Fir 2″x4″s
• 1/2 Inch to 3/4 Inch PVC pipe
• Six 1/2-in x PVC Sch 40 Caps
• Furring strips 1 Inch x 2 Inches
• 4 Pressure-Treated 2″x12″ Boards
• Deck Screws – 1 and 1/4 Inch, Plus 3 and 1/2 Inch
• Snap Clamp – 1/2 Inch X 4 Inches Wide
• Two Hinges
• A Stainless Steel Handle


1. Cut the 2×4’s to match the dimensions of the raised bed. This offers a platform for the hinged hoophouse.

2. Screw the caps into the 2×4’s towards the inner corners. These will hold the PVC pipes as you hoop them.

3. Measure the distance between the caps; divide this distance by 2 to get the radius; then multiply by 3.14 for an estimate of the PVC pipes’ length.

4. Install the hoops and support pipes to create a frame.

5. Drape the greenhouse film over the structure and pull it tight over the frame. You can use the Snap clamps to hold the cover in place.

6. Secure the plastic cover by ‘sandwiching’ it between the 2×4 Douglas firs and furring strips.

7. Install hinges and a handle.

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:

According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.


It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.

Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!

As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?

But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!

The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.

This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
