News and Information:

A 51′ diameter Growing Dome greenhouse is in place at the
Reed City High School / Middle School campus here in Michigan!

Growing Spaces fifty-one foot Growing Dome greenhouse offers 2,200 square feet of serious growing space, and can withstand a snow load of 65 pounds per square foot and winds of 100 mph.

The dome is used primarily as a greenhouse for growing produce, for aquaponics & hydroponics, but especially as a learning opportunity for high school, middle school, and elementary students.

Students are using this Growing Dome for a place of hands-on experience and education, getting them back in touch with the cycles and seasons of nature. Ordered in Summer 2010, the Dome exterior was completely assembled in one week during September 2010.  Improvements to the interior of the structure have continued since.
