West Virginia State University Extension Service will host two cold-frame construction workshops for gardeners. One workshop will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 31 at the Barnett Center, 1524 10th Ave., Huntington. The second is offered from 10 a.m. to noon Feb. 1 at the School of Harmony, 159 Granby Circle, Beaver. Cold frames are enclosures with transparent roofs that allow plants to still receive sunlight while shielding them from excessive moisture or cold temperatures. Their function is similar to that of a greenhouse, extending the growing season through the winter months. The class costs $40 and includes a cold-frame kit. Registration is required by contacting Brad Cochran, extension associate, at 304-541-3301.
