Mary Peabody and Henry Fitzhugh Greenhouse

Mary Peabody and Henry Fitzhugh Greenhouse

  • This groundbreaking facility was built on the footprint of the original Klein nursery greenhouses. It provides space for plant propagation and growing space and serves as an exhibit of low-energy design.
  • The modern facility is powered, heated, and cooled by a super-efficient solar and geothermal system. During the warmer months, this system produces excess energy that is sent back to the public energy grid, lowering our energy cost and reducing strain on the grid.
  • Plants in the greenhouse are not for sale, but you are welcome to explore.
  • And don’t miss the green roof located on the back side of the greenhouse.
