Community Greenhouse

Chapter: Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)
Project Leader: Gabriel Kramer
Spatial Scope: Community | Current
# of Active Members: 8

The ESW greenhouse is located in the community garden at RIT. Standing at 5'10" at the peak of the arch, the 8x12' area provides enough room to start enough plants for several different gardens around campus. Showcasing passive design elements such as thermal storage in water jugs and insulation from straw bales, the community greenhouse is a proof of concept that deliberate, simple choices can provide substantial returns.
