Objective


Each group designed a hoop house for the Edible Garden at Phipps Conservatory after being assigned a specific planting arrangement. My group’s planting arrangement was a 16’ long planting plot that was partially blocked from the sun by a towering building. Key components that had to be kept in mind were: Will the hoop house allow for the plants to be easily maintained and watered? Can the hoop house be assembled and diassembled seasonally? Will the plants be protected from frost and get enough sunlight?
