Growing a Sustainable Community through Education, Food and Healthy Living.
Hours Open to Public: See our calendar below. Hours change seasonally. Check our calendar for upcoming special events. Groups and Tours by appointment.
The Greenhouse Project’s goal is to educate both children and adults about horticulture, health, preventing disease through diet and locally-grown food. Plants, herbs and flower sales help us sustain our mission. The Greenhouse Project operates an environmental learning space at The James B. McNulty Greenhouse in Nay Aug Park.
Through partnerships with schools, farmers, local businesses, other non-profits and residents, The Greenhouse Project provides a variety of educational opportunities and supports local food systems. The Greenhouse also offers a variety of volunteer gardening opportunities for all levels of interest and experience.

What Our Clients Are Saying
“After attending The Greenhouse Project's showing of the film “Forks Over Knives,” my husband and I made a commitment to change the types of food we ate for 30 days. We eliminated all processed food, meat, dairy, added sugar, added oils, and opted to choose plant-based items. Within 30 days we saw a significant change in our weight and FELT healthier. We have more energy, better concentration, improved mood, and fewer cravings for unhealthy foods.... We believe that The Greenhouse Project helped us change our life-style, which will benefit us for the rest of our lives!”
