The Loudonville FFA Alumni & Supporters have begun 2022 with a major investment toward the capital project to build a new educational greenhouse at Loudonville High School. The organization recently committed $30,000 from 2021 fundraisers to be set aside for the project.
The current LHS greenhouse was built by the A&S in the 1980s, and although it has served as an educational classroom for nearly 4 decades it is no longer ideal for the current educational needs of the department.
A&S is hoping to work with the L-P Board of Education to gain approval to build a new, larger and more accessible greenhouse which will serve LHS students for decades to come. This new greenhouse will include greater accessibility, better design to allow for large groups, as well as more efficient climate control in order to provide more suitable growing environments.
Although the project is still in the early planning stages, the project is expected to cost approximately $300,000. Stay tuned for more updates and fundraising opportunities once the project is approved by the Board of Education.
