Josh Smith, CEO of Modular Greenhouses, has a goal of making sure every school, and in Reno, Nevada, and around the country has their own greenhouse. This is an attempt to help bring an end to children going hungry, while also bringing educational benefits to them.
Learning where your food comes from, and how to grow it yourself, is an important part of being self-sufficient. Having greenhouses in schools will help kids learn about what they eat first hand, while also providing food that is much needed for many of them.
Josh Smith and Modular Greenhouses, recently delivered a greenhouse to High Desert Montessori School, much to the delight of the students. They also received enough money to be able to buy the soil and planters needed to get their new project started. Great Full Gardens, a restaurant in Reno, Nevada, helped fund the greenhouse and in the future, would like to purchase the crops grown in it to use in their restaurant.
A serial entrepreneur, Josh Smith decided to use his skills and knowledge for a cause that is important to him: making sure all children are fed. A long time love of his has been gardening, and with his ability for problem solving, he found a way to make greenhouses that can be placed in even very small areas so more people can grow their own food. Smith’s hope is to bring greenhouses to every school around Reno, Nevada by 2020 and every school in America by 2025. To achieve this goal, they are offering the greenhouses to schools for only the cost of making and delivering them.
The greenhouses are made with airplane grade aluminum, so they stay sturdy through winds up to 120 mph. There are different anchoring tools available to properly match the ground it will be put on. Sizes vary to fit any need, and they are designed to be easily connected if you’re wanting to expand on what you already have. If desired, you can design your own custom greenhouse.
If you have questions, or would like to get a greenhouse in your local school, contact Modular Greenhouses today.
