Our current capacity for equipment storage, protection of seedlings, and indoor tasks is severely limited. Increasingly harsh weather conditions pose challenges—both to our plants and our workers—due to lack of proper shelter from the elements. With your financial support, we plan to upgrade our facilities. Please donate now to help meet our goal of $67,000 to accomplish the following:
• Build a 300-square-foot shed, and
• Install a 400-square-foot unheated greenhouse
The shed will provide storage for tools and equipment as well as a sheltered workspace for seeding, transplanting, and seed processing. The shed’s purpose-built design will incorporate a green or living roof planted with San Juan County native species. The greenhouse will protect overwintering plants in containers and provide space for growing and germinating seeds in early spring and for drying harvested seeds in the summer.
