4 Season, Community garden, Large scale

Posted by mddezyne MN (My Page) on

I am currently trying to collect information on 4 season gardening projects that are community based within a larger structure. This is something I am doing a paper about, the viability of a 4 season indoor community gardening project.

I am located in Minnesota, so I am wondering if anyone has heard of any projects that are taking place in northern climates say, at, or above 45 degrees latitude. I haven't had any luck finding any information of larger scale projects, my interest is that some of the abandoned buildings (after some work was done), could be retro-fitted to work with this like a large greenhouse. Links or directions are welcome.
Thank you.

Mike

RE: 4 Season, Community garden, Large scale

check out http://www.rochesterroots.org/resources.php. I know they are a community garden, 4 season, and they have a greenhouse, but I do not think they are entirely indoors. It is in upstate NY, so certainly northern enough, I believe, and they work with 3 schools, so the project is not tiny. Hope this helps.
