Greenhouse Upgrade

The horticulture greenhouse recently received a dramatic upgrade in the form of new benches. Thanks to recently secured state funds, five rolling benches were installed over the holiday break. These high tech benches allow for greater production capacity while using a smaller “footprint” compared with standard “fixed” benches. As the name implies, these benches can be individually rolled sideways as needed to access plants from either side. With this new system in place along with new automatic side vents and a retractable thermal screen, our students are now able to work in an environment more closely aligned with industry.
