Greenhouse Status

We will be pulling the greenhouse poles out of the ground tomorrow and then moving them to the new site to put back in. Hard work but worth it!

We can still use volunteers to assist with moving the greenhouse (Zebulon in Wake County) and re-assembly (Zebulon/Pilot in Franklin County).

Moving will continue this Wednesday and Saturday, and then re-assembly will begin! We will be working pretty much every day from this Saturday through early January to get the greenhouse up.

Once we have the greenhouse working in January, we'll be planting 10,000 plants for giveaway in April.  (All US gardeners welcome to come to the giveaway for our free garden plants, as long as you are willing to sign our pledge to share your harvest.)

Please email or call if you are available to help in the next few weeks.

I’d like to again thank our volunteers from this past Saturday. With help from Guerrilla Growfair (Crop Mob) we were able to dis-assembly the entire greenhouse! Helpers included Mitch A., Steven H., Paul B., Matt R., Fabian L., and of course Grow And Share’s own Frank W. and Kay W. We worked from early morning through about 4:30pm and accomplished quite a bit. Thank you all for helping!

 
 

Greenhouse 2 and request for your help

Greenhouse 2 is well on its way to relocation here at Grow And Share in Zebulon, NC USA.

This past weekend, volunteers Riley E., Mitch A., Craig A., AJ B., and Frank and Kay Whatley took down all of the electrical systems. Heater, fans, and other components have been taken down and readied for the move.

This upcoming Saturday, December 12th, a group of volunteers and the local Crop Mob will be taking down the greenhouse structure and plastic and loading it into trucks. We hope to move all the components to our site by the end of the weekend.

By the following week, re-construction at the new greenhouse site will be underway. The plan is to have the greenhouse re-built and electrical systems re-connected by the end of the year.

We could use a few more volunteers and some support. Please email Grow And Share if you can help us with:

- taking down the greenhouse this Saturday

- access to a large truck for moving the pipes and other pieces

- ASAP this week access to a bob cat to finish smoothing the greenhouse's new site, or donations to help us cover rental costs ($350 for a single day).

- assistance over the next two weeks with re-assembly

- donation of cinder blocks, boards, or heavy wire mesh to construct tables inside the greenhouse

- miscellaneous other help

We thank our generous benefactor for his donation of this wonderful, all-inclusive greenhouse. In January 2010 as the greenhouse is brought online, we will be dedicating it to this kind gentleman and his family. More details on the dedication will be posted at that time.
