The OVF Greenhouse
In March of 2011, Ocean View Farms, entered a competition sponsored by Deloach Vineyards in conjunction with Organic Gardening Magazine for a chance to win $4,000.00 to help improve our garden. We submitted a proposal to build a greenhouse for the garden and were chosen as one of the finalist in the competition. Over the next four months, OVF members and friends voted in an online poll, along with about 20 other finalists across the country. In August of 2011, OVF finished among the top five vote-getters, and each of the top five gardens was awarded $4,000.00 to complete their project.
In January of 2012, a proposal was submitted to build a greenhouse, as opposed to purchasing a greenhouse kit, because of the added character it would give to the garden. Once the location was finalized and the materials ordered, construction on the new greenhouse began in May and lasted approximately 3 weekends.
This is a community greenhouse so good sanitation is essential to a clean healthy environment. In order to maintain this type of environment, the following greenhouse rules and regulations will be in effect at all times.
