Year-Round School Greenhouse
When Vail Mountain School wanted to add a custom school greenhouse, they knew they wanted an energy-efficient, sustainable structure that would demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and hands-on learning. They turned to Ceres to design and engineer a beautiful, year-round greenhouse that would blend with their school and provide an abundant learning environment for all classes. Ceres engineering team designed a custom GAHT system, so the greenhouse could run off stored solar energy in the soil for most of the year.
“We built our greenhouse to be more than a place to grow plants or a source of healthy food. It’s a year-round classroom where we can teach everything from basic plant life cycles to the ethical issues of the global food supply. At the end of the day, healthy bodies and minds go hand in hand.” _ Mike Imperi, Head of Vail Mountain School
