Greenhouse, Farm, and Garden Collaboration

Year: 2014

Grant Amount: $13,830

This project utilizes and enhances existing greenhouse space, creating a place where students and the UT community can learn about sustainability through tours and hands-on activity. Strong collaboration between the Biology greenhouses, the UT Microfarm, and the Concho Community Garden will provide an opportunity to further educate the UT community by providing monthly “Faculty on the Farm” sustainability talks at the UT Microfarm. The Painter greenhouse interior will also receive solar-powered, improved ventilation, making it a better environment for learning and experiments (such as seedling growth).
