Greenhouse Space Available to Maplewood Residents for 2022–23

Applications for rental space in the Rahner Greenhouse will be received in the Maplewood Municipal Building meeting hall, 574 Valley St., on Thursday, September 8. The application form must be signed by the applicant and accompanied by the seasonal rental fee of $30.00. Either a check made out to ‘Township of Maplewood’ or cash will be accepted. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis. A sign-in sheet will be brought to the meeting hall lobby at 4:00 PM, at which time you may enter your name on the sheet. Each person in line may enter only one name on the sign-in sheet. If you are also signing in for another person who is unable to attend the sign-in, you may go back to the end of the line and sign in for that person. One person, one name on the sign-in sheet. If there is no one in line behind you, you may sign in for others on consecutive lines. Once you have signed in, there is no need to remain at the hall, but you must return at 6:00 PM to be assigned your space.

The allocation of spaces will start at 6:00 PM and is usually finished by 7:00. Benches will be distributed in the order in which applicants have signed in. Residents unable to sign in earlier may come anytime between 6:00 and 7:00 and still get a bench. Please be prepared to complete the application and submit the fee.

If you cannot make it to the town hall sign-up night, a space can be rented from the Department of Public Works, 359 Boyden Ave., beginning at 12:00 PM Monday, September 12.

This year the greenhouse season will be from Saturday, October 1, 2022, through Memorial Day, May 29, 2023.

Question from a newbie, what do you mean by bench?


A bench is a workspace.


How warm does the greenhouse stay?  What's the lowest temperature it might get when the outside temp drops into the teens?
