I have volunteered to be a greenhouse mentor for a Juvenile
Detention Facility. I have the energy and the interest, but
no practical experience. I have the Penn State Extension Service Library at my service but am looking for an e-mail
mentor. Any volunteers?

Good for you! It sounds like a very worthy and interesting venture.

I can give you some web sites that have chat rooms--you may be able to find someone with lots of greenhouse experience that's willing to help out. Try GardenEscape at and The Virtual Gardener at Also Dig Magazine, at

All these sites are described as having chat rooms and forums for discussion.

Also, I'd recommend you get a good greenhouse gardening book for reference. A good one is "Greenhouse Gardener's Companion" by Shane Smith (Fulcrum Publishing, Golden, Colorado, 1992) ISBN 1-55591-106-4 Your local bookstore should be able to order it for you, or check out for an on-line bookstore.

Also, feel free to post questions via our web page when something specific comes up, and we'll try to search out an answer for you!

I hope this helps!
