Year Round School Greenhouse
Located in Sun Valley, Idaho, the Community School was inspired by an energy-efficient aquaponics greenhouse heated by solar hot water. They contacted Ceres about designing a custom attached greenhouse that would blend with the school and provide hands-on learning opportunities for all students. Ceres provided the greenhouse design and engineering and materials for the greenhouse, and partnered with a local builder to complete the build.
The year-round greenhouse is sited on the back of the school gym. It relies on passive solar greenhouse design, and runs off the school’s solar panels to create a net-zero-energy, year-round learning garden. It will feature an aquaponics system and lab area, and begin growing in 2017.
