The research greenhouse project

Come see what could be the greenhouse of the future as the Cleveland Botanical Garden and Kent State University embark on a collaborative partnership exploring the potential of liquid crystal technology for creating more sustainable, energy-efficient greenhouses.

Two greenhouses located in front of the Garden on Wade Oval will be used to begin the experiment. One contains the liquid crystal panels, and the other (a control) has plain glass. A demonstration will reveal how the panes "switch" to manage the amount of sunlight that enters the greenhouse.

Join the Garden and Kent State as they unveil this pioneering research project.
