The Greenhouse Project

Greg Phillips, a LEED accredited project manager/project architect, is going to be helping us with our hay bale greenhouse project. A few weeks ago he stopped by to talk to the children about greenhouses. He explained what they are, what they do, how they work, and why we use them.  We'll be breaking ground soon and getting the flooring down for the foundation.  Stay tuned for more updates!
