Oklahoma Horticultural Society Speaker

Greenhouse Inspiration, Design, and Construction for Energy Efficiency

Douglas C Needham, Ph.D., V.M.M.

What inspired glasshouse design in the mid-19th through 20th centuries, and what inspires large-scale conservatory design today? How can we layer that inspiration and design with energy efficient materials and equipment for our own smaller scale greenhouses?

Plan now to attend the Oklahoma Horticultural Society meeting at The Botanic Garden at OSU on Saturday, October 5, at 1pm to see greenhouse structures from some of the world’s greatest public gardens, hear what inspired their design, and learn how you can incorporate some of their design elements into your own greenhouse. Learn, too, about choices of glazing, base wall and frame construction, and heating and cooling systems to reduce the carbon input of maintaining an optimal greenhouse environment in Oklahoma.
