Greenhouses and cultivation spaces

The department had a couple of big greenhouses both outside the former Geneticum alongside Tornavägen and by Biology Building A, Sölvegatan 35.

The greenhouse has automatic watering and computer controlled atmospheric humidity, temperature (10–23°C; regulated by hot water) and brightness (regulated by protective fabric). Fully 20% of the greenhouse area is a cold house that stands temperatures below zero after the water pipes are emptied.

Outside there are cultivation benches, supplementary spaces, a tool shed and a shelter with roof. This area is surrounded with fence, lockable gates, power sockets and water taps. It is created to be sheltered from the wind, shut off from people’s view and light from the surrounding street lighting.
