The D. C. Smith Greenhouse supports instruction in many ways. Plants are grown for identification or for demonstrations of plant culture and physiology. Others are used directly by students in laboratory classes about plant propagation, or for studies of plant pests and diseases. Space may also be available for independent study projects by undergraduate students.

The greenhouse has also been used by engineering labs for projects in practical design as well as by art classes to draw living botanical specimens.

To request greenhouse growing space for your class please fill out the space request form or contact the D.C. Smith Greenhouse manager at 608/262-3844.

At the south end of the greenhouses is a laboratory work space (headhouse) equipped for up to 25 students so classes can meet close to their materials. To reserve the headhouse for your class please contact the greenhouse manager. You can check availability on our event calendar.
