Deborah Shubat, the greenhouse manager, has been building a global plant collection and serving our department since the early 1980's. It is the extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for plants that Deb imparts in her greenhouse tours that draws in annual trips for boys and girls clubs, garden clubs, home school groups, religious associations, day-care centers, and classes from regional public schools and community colleges.
Students are employeed in the greenhouse year-round and their primary duties are plant care, database management, facilities maintenance, and public interaction. Students currently employeed are:
