Gardens Manitoba

A Greenhouse Project

Interior of geodesic greenhouse

The Board of Gardens Manitoba is investigating establishing a greenhouse with Canadian Mennonite University (CMU). A letter of intent was signed in September 2013 between Gardens Manitoba and the CMU to investigate the feasibility of building a shared greenhouse on the CMU property. A full-time student at the university has developed a draft proposal looking into designs, costs, possible funding sources etc.

42 foot dome greenhouse

At present a geodesic dome is the design being considered. This design is partly passive solar.
Included would be classroom/meeting room space as well as growing space for our plant sales and programs.

This is a very exciting project and we are looking forward to the draft proposal.
