The core delight of a greenhouse is to commune with nature and in this case, communing with neighbors and friends. Over the years our community greenhouses range from a covered garden plot to event space to extra space to hold club meetings and workshops.
Many neighborhoods are considering greenhouses to improve local food supply, improve access to urban agriculture and provide a space for adults and children alike to understand the therapeutic benefits of growing and being closer to nature.
When selecting a site for your foundation, choose a flat, level surface where your greenhouse can be easily installed, stable and secure. Locate your greenhouse close to power and water, while also considering water drainage and easy access. Try to locate the greenhouse so that 6 hours of sunlight is available during winter months.

The rules for the permit process depends on your municipality but generally speaking, a structure less than 120 square feet that is not considered permanent does not require a permit. We are able to provide engineered shop drawings to secure the required permits, if necessary. For more information, please visit https://info.bcgreenhouses.com/en-ca/greenhousepermit
It's the best way to get started on the journey to your new greenhouse!
