The Greenhouse Project concept started in November 2008 with the Carson City Cultural Commission, an advisory board to the Carson City Board of Supervisors, whose mission is to forward civic and economic benefit for Carson City and the State of Nevada. Cultural Commission member Karen Abowd proposed that the Commission undertake a project to increase agricultural and horticultural arts in Carson City. To this end, a Special Citizen Action Group of over 35 members was formed and, in February of 2009, the group presented the project to the Board of Supervisors. The project won the Board’s approval together with its commitment of staff resources to aid in establishing a community greenhouse.
Karen Abowd’s original concept was to build a greenhouse to produce hanging flower baskets for Carson City’s downtown business district. The Action Group, however, envisioned the greenhouse as a community facility that would serve a broader purpose and also provide a hub for people of all ages to engage in cooperative, healthy activity. Thus, the project was expanded beyond the production of flower baskets to include educational and vocational programs that will ultimately serve as a source of fresh produce for local food banks and school programs.
