Growers Supply has been creating school greenhouses under the GrowSpan name for decades, and, during this time, has helped universities, schools and research institutions create educational greenhouses that are customized to their exact curriculum, campus and research needs. A GrowSpan school greenhouse creates a learning environment with plenty of space for hands-on growing lessons. With open floor plans, students are able to view demonstrations from any point in the greenhouse. When used for research, these greenhouses provide a versatile growing space with a completely controlled environment, ensuring that experiments and research can be carried out with precision and accuracy year-round.

Research facilities, universities and K-12 educators alike have had incredible success growing plants inside GrowSpan greenhouses over the years. Plants produced in a GrowSpan greenhouse benefit from numerous features that support improved growth and development. Valuable light transmission and spacious interiors help plants reach their full potential, and teachers and students are sure to have the best greenhouse classroom possible to learn, conduct research or perform demonstrations. Additionally, these institutions can gain access to fresh crops year-round that would otherwise be impossible to grow in traditional school gardens.

GrowSpan offers an extensive line of greenhouse designs, ranging from smaller free-standing structures and greenhouse kits to expansive gutter connected designs, ensuring there’s a solution for any institution.
