New permanent rooftop greenhouse facility shines

Finally, after a long wait spanning several years, the ESP greenhouse has a new (and permanent) home!  Located on the 4th floor of the newly-renovated Exploratory Hall on the Fairfax campus, it is a state-of-the-art facility with three main rooms: a prep room with a storage area, a second room for plants who live in drier environments, and a third room for plants that need more humidity and shade.  The light, humidity and temperatures in the greenhouse are all controlled by computerized technology, which can achieve greater precision and efficiency.
