Pinnacles Greenhouse

  • The Pinnacles Greenhouse is managed by the Organics Guild, a student group, and is used to grow food all winter long.  Greenhouses are called “season extenders” because they extend the season when it is warm enough to grow food.  Season extenders are extremely important in Gunnison since our growing seasons are so short - it is difficult to grow anything without something to protect from unexpected frosts which can happen at any time of year.
  • The Pinnacles Greenhouse is home to many innovative student projects, such as an aquaponics system that produces tilapia, an herb wall, strawberry plants, tomato plants, and growing space for year-round greens.  Some of the produce from this space has been sold to Sodexo for use in Rare Air Cafe.  Everything in the greenhouse is organic, meaning it is grown without the use of pesticides or chemicals.
