Event description

Description

Build Your Own Balloon Greenhouse and Create a Greenhouse Room at New York Botanical Garden!

A greenhouse protects the plants inside by blocking out some of the more harmful aspects of the environment like harsh winds, heavy rains, or extreme temperature fluctuations. It also traps the warm air inside and keeps the air around the plants moist and humid, making it the best environment for the plants to flourish. You will get to see firsthand how greenhouses work by making your own — with a balloon!
