Greenhouse Core Facility

Climate-Controlled Organic Environment

Construction of a new state of the art Greenhouse facility started in late November 2005 and was completed by April 2006. The facility features 4,200 square feet of growing space divided into two rooms and the peaked roof structure is fourteen feet to the truss, to better enable the proper growth of corn plants. This replaced the earlier Waksman greenhouse that was originally constructed in 1986, featuring 3,600 square feet of growing space divided in six rooms and a roof structure with a height of 7.5 feet at the truss.
