We would like to welcome Nick Waynick (right) to our staff this year teaching Horticulture and Landscaping classes. With the completion of the new greenhouse located behind HHS, the realm of hands-on teaching expands. Mr. Waynick is happy to be a part of the HHS family. Studies for the horticulture classes include learning about the 240 ft. hydroponic system within the 1,152 square foot greenhouse. “The temperature in the greenhouse stays at 100 degrees in the summer and 70 degrees during the winter,” explains Mr. Waynick. The landscaping class goals include campus improvements such as soil sample testing, growing different grasses, cultivating hanging potted plants, and making general landscaping improvements around the HHS campus. He would like to grow veggies in the greenhouse as well. Welcome to Harpeth, Mr. Waynick. We look forward to seeing new growth through planting knowledge and greenery around the HHS campus.
