The Greenhouse is a place for experimentation, for new ideas to germinate, iterate, and grow strong, sowing the seeds of change.
GWI opened the Greenhouse in fall 2019 to be a home base for a revolution – a hub for Just Transition in the Mahicantuck / Hudson Valley. Located in Kingston, NY, the Greenhouse offers members of our community a physical space to work, collaborate, share wisdom, host meetings, celebrate events, and throw dance parties.
How can you use the space?
We welcome all members of the community. Currently, due to COVID restrictions, we are still in a phase of limited use, so we are open only to resident members and indoor-outdoor meetings.
We look forward to opening up for a wider array of possibilities in the near future:
- When we reopen, people will be able to stop by to learn more about Just Transition, the dismantling of oppressive systems of extraction, and the building of an alternative community and society based on care and connection.
- During Open Door Days, the first floor will be accessible to anyone in the community to come and work for the day in our bright spaces.
- We will offer paid access to desk space and meeting rooms for our GWI Network members.
- Our library will open for GWI Network members to browse and borrow from our collection of over 2,000 books.
Our conference room and event/meeting spaces can already be booked by Just Transition-aligned projects and organizations on a sliding scale basis. Please contact us using the form below to inquire about how you or your organization might be able to use the space. The space has been utilized for film screenings, workshops, meetups, book clubs, presentations, potlucks and more. We currently have COVID guidelines in place to ensure safety and health for all.
Some of the organizations that have utilized the space (pre-COVID): Radio Kingston; O+; TMI Project; HV Current; Newburgh LGBTQ; Xtinction Rebellion; Transition Town Kingston; Future of Care; Sustainable Hudson Valley; Holistic Health Community; BOCES; YMCA Farm Project; Nubian Cafe; Rise Up Kingston.
