Farm to Classroom is seeking community support to build a new lasting greenhouse in the heart of their beloved garden.
This winter, winds deconstructed their temporary greenhouse of two years, a 12-foot x 24-foot Gothic arch structure made of recycled materials. The desired kit, undergoing permit process now, is identical in shape and size to the temporary one, but made with hard polycarbonate walls and cypress wooden arches, guaranteed to last 10 years.
With the majority of the project budget funded, they are now inviting donations through an online GoFundMe campaign toward purchase of the greenhouse kit, asking for the remaining $4,500 by end of April.
Upon raising these final funds, they will be able to build this June, in time to transplant the tomatoes, peppers, hibiscus, Malabar spinach and gherkins that are so anticipated when school resumes in autumn.
