One of our favourite BC Greenhouse Builders projects! This Greenhouse that we built and went on sight to install is a 17x46 custom greenhouse for a public school in Brooklyn (PS216) as part of The Edible Schoolyard Project. The greenhouse is the heart of the classroom whereby the students will be gardening in a kitchen classroom setting that provides a hands-on environment for students in which to apply skills learned in traditional math, science and humanities classes.
Alice Waters, the founder of The Edible Schoolyard, calls the project a delicious revolution:
What we are calling for is a revolution in public education – the Delicious Revolution. When the hearts and minds of our children are captured by a school lunch curriculum, enriched with experience in the garden, sustainability will become the lens through which they see the world.

Here are some pictures of us on the job as well as the process from rendering to building!
