Greenhouse progress

We are in the midst of assisting in the planning and building of two greenhouses for the Lewis & Clark gardens, which are to be built once the school year starts. Today we took a trip with Amy Dvorak (Sustainability Manager) and Lucy (Greenhouse Extraordinaire) to the Habitat for Humanity Restore in the SE and the ReBuilding Center on Mississippi. Both places had a wealth of reclaimed, usable materials that will hopefully soon be a part of greenhouse project.  For the greenhouse, we hope to create a reclaimed, sustainable structure with such attributes as a rain barrel for capturing gutter runoff, sliding doors to maximize space, shelves from reclaimed materials, and as many windows as possible for heat retention (and alternatively, ventilation).  Keep posted for updates and photos of the process!  Have a peaceful, joyful afternoon.
