Oklahoma State University's new $6 million, state-of-the-art Greenhouse Learning Center opened its doors at the start of the fall semester.
The Greenhouse Learning Center features six greenhouses, including an isolated entomology greenhouse; and a headhouse, which includes a classroom, office space and plant-preparation area, as well as storage space for soil, equipment and chemicals such as fertilizer and pest-management materials. The large foyer provides space for student club meetings.
The center also houses cutting-edge irrigation systems, intense climate and humidity control and other technology standard in today’s horticulture industry.
The Greenleaf Nursery Headhouse is named in honor of the $1 million contribution Greenleaf Nursery gave before construction began.
