DASNR's new Greenhouse Learning Center

Students in Oklahoma State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources will soon have access to a new facility that will better prepare them to enter the professional workforce. The Greenhouse Learning Center, a $6 million facility, will replace and improve functions of OSU’s existing teaching greenhouses that have been in use for decades. Greenleaf Nursery, one of North America’s largest wholesale nursery growers and long-time partner and supporter of OSU’s horticulture programs, has committed $1 million toward this new project. The Greenhouse Learning Center will feature six greenhouses, including an isolated entomology greenhouse, and head house, which includes a classroom, office space and plant-preparation area, as well as storage space for soil, equipment and chemicals such as fertilizer and pest-management materials. A large foyer will provide space for student club meetings. It also will house cutting-edge irrigation systems, intense climate and humidity control and other technology standard in today’s horticulture industry. Construction is expected to be completed in fall 2019.
