Partner with RSDP to Build Your Greenhouse
Partner with the University of Minnesota to bring Deep Winter Greenhouse technology to your farm, business, or community organization.
The Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships is seeking one farmer, business, or community organization in each RSDP region in Greater Minnesota (outside of the Twin Cities metro) with whom to partner on Deep Winter Greenhouse research and extension. We will provide approximately half of the cost to build a prototype DWG on your property out of which you can produce specialty greens throughout the winter months. In return, the RSDP will coordinate research projects and public workshops and demonstrations over the first three years.
