TVE greenhouse gets a new home at the AgriLife office

Alexis Cordova and helper show off the new sign

Several years ago, the late Bubba Groce of Cleveland, through his generous family, donated a greenhouse to the Trinity Valley Exposition for the kids involved in horticulture projects.  Over the years as it’s usage declined and some damage was discovered,  what to do with the structure became an important question.  Well, that has now been answered.  The greenhouse is now been moved to the grounds of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service on Palmer St. in Liberty. The future looks bright for the greenhouse as it will be used to help educate the community on backyard gardening.  A Ground Breaking Ceremony and Volunteer Appreciation Event is set for December 12th.  Extension agent Alexis Cordova said Sonda and Chip Green, owners of roundhouse greenhouses in Cleveland, will be on hand to take part in the rededication of the greenhouse. Sonda Green is the daughter of the late Bubba Groce.

Master gardeners will also be on hand with displays and educational material.  We will update as plans become more concrete, but mark your calendars for this groundbreaking event and this very nice addition to the Liberty County Extension office .
