Greenhouse: The Master Gardener greenhouse is a 24 x 48 North slope hoop house with lexan end walls. It was purchased used and refurbished by our MG's. Site preparation took two years.
We use this facility to propagate and grow on all of our annuals and some of our perennials and vegetable plants for our annual plant sale. With 12 benches, three pH corrected water stations, circulation and exhaust fans, and thermostat controlled heater, we have been able to grow over 4500 transplants to market size. We are currently using two germination tables for seed propagation and continue increase our efficacy in monitoring plant growth, pest management and disease prevention.
We also use the facility for hands-on workshops and classes for the public and Master Gardeners
