    Greenhouse production | Final weeks

    Jan 13, 2018

    Our time will be over in two weeks time. We have for the location of the company. One of the components of the plan is the construction of a wooden constructed a plan greenhouse. This greenhouse will serve as an example greenhouse for farmers. They can learn to grow plants in the
    greenhouse and become convinced of the benefits. The construction of the greenhouse will start when the ground of the location has been levelled for what they are doing now, because there are still a lot of stumps in the ground. All materials are inside so after the equalization, the construction
    can start immediately.

Greenhouse Production

From the 4th of November until the 29th of January a group of 3 TU students, Valérie de Vlam, Anne Roebroeck en Paul van Wiechen, will travel to Suriname to stimulate the use of greenhouses in the agricultural sector. 

The use of tropical greenhouses is relatively undiscovered in the province Marowijne. Therefore the group will set up a local enterprise which will sell sustainable building packages. Farmers of the Marowijne province will be able to construct the greenhouses themselves with these packages by consulting an easy-to- use manual. Keep track of our website for all updates on this project.
