Tremont gets new greenhouse

posted Mar 18, 2014, 9:59 AM by Tremont Eagles
We are excited about our new addition to the campus here at Tremont High School.

A new greenhouse has been built behind the Ag shop next to the previous greenhouse.

The building will be completed by the beginning of February 2014.

Horticulture teacher, Kristin Holley, plans to use the old greenhouse to nurture flowers and use the new one to house vegetables.

The new greenhouse is 30 ft. x 48 ft. which is larger than the old one.

Some benefits of the new greenhouse will be to allow students a place with more room to grow a wider variety of vegetables and flowers. It is also more up to date with newer technology.

Classes that will benefit from the greenhouse are AgriScience, Horticulture 1, Horticulture 2, and Horticulture Nursery. In addition, Mrs. Holley hopes to incorporate teaching some younger elementary students about growing and nurturing plants and flowers.

Mrs. Holley says, "I am so thankful for the opportunity to have this new facility to help teach my students more about this industry and I would like to thank everyone who helped make it possible."

Cainan Stokes, Horticulture 1 student, says, "The new greenhouse is modernized. It makes the old one look outdated."

Tremont began its Horticulture program back in 2013 and is excited about the advancements it has made. If you would like to find out more information about the new greenhouse or any of the classes provided for students, contact the school office or Kristin Holley.
