Triton’s new High Tech Greenhouse Coming Soon

A new aquaponic system that will allow fish and plants to grow in one integrated ecosystem is the highlight of the Triton’s East Greenhouse Modernization project. Work on the project has been underway all spring and is expected to be completed by August 2016. When it’s done- the new greenhouse will be about 33 percent bigger than the one it is replacing. The aquaponic system will feature computerized climate control and watering capabilities. The new greenhouse, which is located just outside of the R-Building on the east side of campus, will serve as an additional learning tool for students enrolled in Triton’s Horticulture and Sustainable Agriculture Programs. Additionally, the greenhouse and adjoining botanical garden will combine to produce  vegetables and herbs that will be used by students in our Hospitality Industry Administration Program.
