Our Mission: Growing a Sustainable Community through Education, Wholesome Food, and Healthy Active Living.

Groups and Tours by appointment.

The Greenhouse Project’s goal is to educate both children and adults about health and preventing disease through diet and locally-grown food. We operate an environmental learning space at The James B. McNulty Greenhouse in Nay Aug Park.

Plants, herbs, and flower sales help us sustain our mission.

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.
