Alverno College Greenhouse
The Alverno College greenhouse is a living laboratory, including classroom space and a state-of-the-art aquaponics facility that sustainably grows plants, vegetables and perch. The 1,400-square-foot greenhouse offers students an exciting opportunity to engage in hands-on learning, participate in research projects, and explore new career paths in food, urban agriculture, water research, conservation and human services industries. Students from different disciplines have hands-on access to the greenhouse, exploring how science, education, art and more are uniquely intertwined.
