TIFTON— Students enrolled in the bachelor’s degree programs in Environmental Horticulture and Agricultural Education are utilizing a new 3,600 square foot greenhouse at the J.G. Woodroof Farm at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
“It has all the bells and whistles of a modern greenhouse,” Dr. Mark Kistler, Dean of the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources, said at the recent ceremonial cutting of the ribbon. “It will benefit the entire campus but primarily students involved in horticulture and ag education.”
Kistler thanked the Georgia Department of Education for a $150,000 construction-bond grant which supplied the majority of the funding for the structure. He also credited Atlas Greenhouse, Barber Construction Company, and the ABAC administration for their support.
“This greenhouse will allow us to continue to expand our programs, and it has enough space that we can use it for a lot of things,” Kistler said. “The Horticulture Club can run its plant sale out of here at Homecoming.”
