The non-profit seniors’ group produced 30 pounds of food per week in the city-owned greenhouse before it was destroyed in a windstorm last June. The new structure is a 'modern, state of the art greenhouse,' said Sabo. Hernandez said the construction is going surprisingly fast and she expects SEEDS to be planting seeds within a few weeks.
