Our new water garden is done! Church Hill Landscapes did a wonderful job! We will have to wait until the waterproofing cures (around Feb 18) before filling it with water. But the conservatory is put back together for everyone to enjoy.

The UVM Greenhouse Facilities are located on three sites in Burlington and South Burlington, Vermont.  We serve the research, teaching, and outreach needs of many departments at the university.

UVM Main Campus Greenhouse Complex, as the name implies, is located on the UVM main campus in Burlington, Vermont. Completed in 1991, this computer controlled 8,000 square feet, glass structure is divided into 11 adjoining compartments and an outdoor nursery. This facility is used by faculty, staff, and students in teaching, research, and extension. Of the three facilities this is the only one that is regularly open to the public. It is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except holidays. Connected to many research/teaching buildings through Stafford Hall and the newly completed Jefford Hall this greenhouse is located adjacent to metered visitor parking in the Davis Circle. 

BioResearch Complex (BRC) Greenhouse facilities are located off Spear Street in South Burlington, Vermont. Comprised of four structures (one glass and three poly covered) built over many years by members of the Entomology Research Laboratory group, these structures have served as the nexus for greenhouse entomological work for the state.

Horticultural Research Complex Greenhouse facilities are located at the Horticultural Research Complex off Green Mountain Drive in South Burlington, Vermont. Comprised of two poly covered houses (one built in 2003; the other in 2005) this facility serves, for the most part, UVM student club activities.

2018 Garden Spot Program

It is with great regret and sadness that we have to announce that we will not be able to support the Garden Space Program for 2018 growing season.

We have had an influx of research and teaching projects this fall due to some recent faculty hiring. The winter-spring season is looking even more active with large research projects, more than we have hosted in the last ten years. The increased activity will impact all of the Greenhouse Facilities. With available space at a critical low during the majority of the spring growing season we have reluctantly decided to suspend the Garden Space Program for the coming year.

Looking forward, we believe that during the growing season of 2019 we will again be able to host the Garden Space Program. We will keep you apprised as to the Program’s status and number of spaces available

If you are interested in growing with us in 2019, send your name and e-mail to to reserve a space.
