A greenhouse on campus will:

  • Allow access for more programs, including landscape horticulture, culinary, and science.
  • Introduce students to both conventional and organic growing practices.
  • Replace the leased space.
  • Create a partnership with the Hillview Urban Agriculture Center.

The groundbreaking for this important facility was postponed from summer 2014. Western and the greenhouse partners – Hillview Urban Agriculture Center, Mayo Clinic Health System-Franciscan Healthcare, and the La Crosse Community Foundation – are working on additional conceptual elements. The goal is to begin construction late fall 2014 or early spring 2015.
