Alverno Greenhouse

Alverno College Greenhouse

The Alverno Greenhouse

The Alverno College greenhouse will be a living laboratory, including classroom space and a state-of-the-art aquaponics facility that will sustainably grow plants, vegetables and perch. The 1,400-square-foot greenhouse will offer 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 will have hands-on access to the greenhouse, exploring how science, education, art and more are uniquely intertwined.

Want to use the greenhouse?

If you would like to use the greenhouse this fall, or want to have plants grown specifically for fall classes, please send an email to either greenhouse@alverno.edu or to Christy Bell.
