Lane Patterson Starts Up The South Pole Greenhouse for Winter 2013

Although it wasn’t used during my summer season, the South Pole Station does have its very own spaceage greenhouse. In preparation for the upcoming Winter season, scientists Lane Patterson arrived on station shortly before the winter closure to get things started. Lane will be running the Greenhouse all winter, which ideally will produce about 25lbs of produce per week.
