Our goal is to encourage county youth to engage in the art of gardening. We are currently working with Hot Springs High School to help develop their greenhouse project. Our program is all-inclusive from soil building to harvest. Our long-term goal is to provide meaningful jobs for HSHS students in our Growing Independence Greenhouse Project once established.
Our collective efforts have resulted in obtaining land; we are now raising funds to build Sustainable Greenhouses within the city of T or C. eco-friendly greenhouses have been built over the last 35 years in 28 states with measurable results. Dug into the earth, the cooler underground temperature allows them to provide an ideal growing environment. The design requires very little energy and water and protects crops from high winds and storms.
