QCC’s Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) alumni never forget their roots. Earlier this month PTK alumni Mark Hogan, Darren Burley and James Burley, all current students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, stopped by the PTK Live and Learn Greenhouse to discuss ways they could assist with the new full-size greenhouse that is being built on QCC’s main campus. The new greenhouse is anticipated to be three times the size of the current greenhouse.

The PTK alumni are working on ways to optimize space for the new greenhouse for project-based learning and are looking into the best place to position the greenhouse so that it is the most energy efficient. They are also speaking with other colleges that have full-size greenhouses to learn their best practices and techniques.

“We are so thrilled to have Mark, James and Darren help us with the new greenhouse,” said PTK Advisor Bonnie Coleman. “Their research and expertise will be invaluable to us as we move forward with this exciting project.”
