Grant Award: $6,000
Once a thriving greenhouse business and an important part of the community, production at Causby Greenhouse has decreased over the past years. In order to increase production of vegetables and plants and make the greenhouse more inviting for customers, Jerry will be making significant improvements.
With grant funds, Jerry will be converting to a more efficient heating system, adding drip/emitter irrigation for hanging baskets and large pots and will be enlarging the parking lot to accommodate more customers and make loading/unloading easier.
Causby Greenhouse sells retail and wholesale from their location and to a local feed store. Three local restaurants have committed to buying produce once production increases.
