The Northwest Youth Corp team researched, planned, designed and built a seedling greenhouse for use by a local alternative high school. The organization serves more than 700 teenagers and contributes as a teaching facility in the summer for middle school youth. The new seeding greenhouse is 200 square-foot facility that supports the daily operation of a 2-acre “teaching” organic farm. It will germinate plants and herbs tended throughout the year by students, and the harvested vegetables will feed all the students during their studies in the field and are prepared in a school sponsored culinary arts program. The program for the greenhouse allowed for minimal square footage and incorporated sustainable practices of maximizing daylighting while reusing materials in creative applications.
