Sixth Street Greenhouse
The Sixth Street Greenhouse covers 20,000 square feet, including 18 compartments comprising:
- 13,000 square feet of greenhouse space
- A dozen reach-in or walk-in growth chambers comprising a total of 500 square feet
- Large head house with space for classes, work and storage
Greenhouse compartments and growth chambers are programmed and operated using the fully automated Argus environmental control system. Some compartments are equipped with automated misting and irrigation benches. All are equipped with lighting such as fluorescent, incandescent, high-pressure sodium and metal halide.
The greenhouse has its own weather station that records temperatures, humidity, wind speed and direction and photosynthetically useful sunlight. An advanced recordkeeping system permits access to historical environmental data and a comprehensive alarm system ensures a reliable growth environment in all chambers.
To reserve space at the greenhouse, please submit a space request form. A greenhouse orientation given by a member of the greenhouse staff is also required.
The Sixth Street Greenhouse is located on the University of Idaho’s Moscow campus, at the corner of Sixth Street and Stadium Drive.
