The greenhouse behind Three Rivers Christion (TRC) Elementary School is up, running, and ready to go! Here’s an update from Billie:
The greenhouse has electricity, outlets, and wifi.
The temperature range is 45-75 and can be adjusted as needed.
There is a hydrometer, but no device to control it.
We need to make tables, and we can use the existing PVC network and place simple wire closet shelving on top to support the plant trays.
We can turn on the water for a short time, but it has a leak that needs to be fixed.
Billie recommends we all visit the greenhouse (map). There is a key is in a lockbox on a post. The combination to the lockbox is 2610, the street address of the school.
Here’s a map showing how to reach the greenhouse once you are at TRC.
And now to the exciting stuff! We have Tom Karasek, the President of the Hobby Greenhouse Assoc., coming to share his extensive knowledge of practical greenhouse management. This is a 2-part workshop, total of 4 hours, from 6-8 pm on Jan 9 and 11 at the TRC Elementary School. Please read about it on our calendar. You MUST sign up on Doodle or let Alice know if you can attend, as seating is limited—the first 25 MGs to sign up may attend.
