The Q&A Archives: New School Greenhouse

Question: We just got a new 12'x 24' school greenhouse. Do you have any tips for setting it up and using it with our 650 students? Are there websites which offer set-up ideas and green house lesson plans?
Thank you.

Answer: You might enjoy checking out National Gardening Association's web site; here is the address for the Kids and Classrooms page:

The Growing Ideas newsletter is filled with information about using plants in the classroom.

NGA sells a 28 page book called "Guide to School Greenhouses", as well as a general guide for greenhouse growing called "Greenhouse Gardener's Companion". You can order these via NGA's storefront at or by calling 800-538-7476.

I hope this helps!
