THE HOOP GREENHOUSE
The Hoop Greenhouse: Season Two
With our first effort this past spring the Greenhouse Team was able to successfully produce from seed 6 different variety of herbs. This was bolstered by a very successful member supported plant sale. In all we were able to produce 120 plants! For the upcoming growing season, we hope to acquire and install the final infrastructure elements that will make the greenhouse usable year round and eventually double our annual production. We now need your support to cross the bridge by helping us to outfit the greenhouse with all the necessary components.
A fully functioning greenhouse at Adelphi Acre will make it possible for us to:
- Increase support for the CUMC Food Pantry
- Enhance plant productivity & offer wider array at bi-annual sale
- Reduce upfront plant sale costs with in-house seedling starts
- Support a garden plot scholarship to low income residents
- Extend outreach to local refugee organizations
- Expand seed collecting & plant propagation workshops to surrounding communities
- Dedicated revenue stream to maintain garden infrastructure as it ages
