The Partnership CDC’s New Greenhouse

May 3, 2010

The Partnership CDC’s Green Professional Training Initiative is underway! As part of the program, The Partnership  built a greenhouse in their backyard. The greenhouse allows the program to grow sedum for green roofs locally. Additionally it provides an educational venue for the students to learn about plant selection, plant biology, and plant care.

The training initiative is part of the Green and Healthy Neighborhood program and through partnerships with The Urban Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, Drexel University, PhilaPOSH and BioNeighbors Sustainable Homes, and NAC.
