US (NH): UNH hosts greenhouse open house

The University of New Hampshire organizes a Greenhouse Open House at the Macfarlane Research Greenhouses Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24, 2018. The greenhouses will be open from 9 am until 4 pm both days. The event is free and open to the public.

A facility of the NH Agricultural Experiment Station, the UNH Macfarlane Research Greenhouses provide a venue for UNH faculty, staff and students to present colorful displays and educational lectures of interest to home gardeners, greenhouse producers, and landscapers. Visitors will learn about bee-friendly gardens and landscapes, cooking with spring greens, development of new economically valuable crop species for Northern New England, status and issues in plant biotechnology, and a home gardening Q&A with extension specialists. The UNH Thompson School will display garden show-quality landscape options with a focus on water features.

The UNH Plant Diagnostic Lab and Cooperative Extension Plant Health Program will have a display on common diseases and problems of garden and landscape plants. Attendees are encouraged to come with questions about plant health problems. UNH experts and Master Gardeners will be on hand to help get gardens off to a great start. On Friday and Saturday tours will be scheduled of both the Macfarlane Research Greenhouses and the UNH high tunnels, two greenhouse-style structures associated with the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems program where students produce greens for on-campus consumption.

Other open house activities include the UNH Thompson School Flower Show and Plant Sale. The Greenhouse Café will serve coffee, lunch, and delicious homemade treats. The café, hosted by the Thompson School Horticultural Club, helps fund the club’s spring trip to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.
