There are two greenhouses at MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center. A 16' by 20' greenhouse, designed and built by Ed Person from Ledgewood Farm Greenhouses in New Hampshire, sits just to the North of the Farmhouse, and is used primarily for starting seedlings. A 30' by 72' Harnois greenhouse, donated to MOFGA by Kelmscott Farm, is located just north of the South Orchard. We move this greenhouse once a year, making it possible to rotate crops and improve soil fertility on the outside section of land each year. MOFGA's Journeypersons in residence use the greenhouses for market production.
