We support local businesses
We also are very community oriented. When shopping on the weekends, you may see a local Boy Scout troop selling hotdogs or a nearby church group selling snow cones. We host various school FUNdraisers on the property where people come to get their faces painted, go for a tractor or pony ride, visit the petting zoo, jump in the moon bounce, buy our plants and gifts, and lots of other activities that generate money for a worthy cause and provide a day’s entertainment for the family. We all take pride that our place of work gives back to the communities in which we live and raise our families in.
For those of you who enjoy some technical details about us, Greenstreet Growers, Inc. propagates rooted liners for Simply Beautiful and the Flower Fields, poinsettias, mums and tender perennials and vegetative plants for fall. Our newest greenhouse complex is used for both cutting and finished production. The propagation area is equipped with a fog system and an under-the-bench hot water system with rolling benches.
The greenhouses are monitored by an ACO computer system. Some other features include: double-shading system, in-floor hot water system, open roof, and a monorail cart system that travels along the hearing system to move the products. We also have two weather stations that monitor temperatures so we can make necessary adjustments when Mother Nature pulls a change on us. And speaking of Mother Nature, our modern technology enables us to expedite the growing process for our crops, making sure proper nutrient requirements are met. A substantial investment was made for our irrigation systems. To make all this happen, we worked closely with Soil Conservation and other Anne Arundel County agencies to comply with storm management and erosion control.
Thanks for learning a bit about us; we look forward to seeing you soon and if you have already stopped by, well, come again soon as plant crops change and new gift shipments arrive regularly. If you haven’t already, check out our events page for current information about events on the farm.
