New Greenhouse Grand Opening Celebration

Join us for the Grand Opening of a Greenhouse at KNOX!

MONDAY, JUNE 11
11:00 AM
KNOX, 75 Laurel St, Hartford, CT

Owner Norma Patrissi of Patrissi Nursery offered to donate a greenhouse to KNOX if the nonprofit was able to fund the disassembly and rebuilding of it on KNOX’s site. Thanks to substantial donations from philanthropists Curtis & Sheila Robinson of the Curtis & Sheila Robinson Foundation, and the Curtis D. Robinson Center for Health Equity at Saint Francis Hospital, the greenhouse now resides at KNOX. Help us celebrate at the Grand Opening.

The greenhouse will double the inside growing space for KNOX’s urban farming program and will increase the amount of Hartford-grown food that reaches the hands of local residents.
