The Greenhouse Industry Roundtable of the Midwest has been financially supported in part by The Gus Poesch Endowment Fund, an award generously provided through the American Floral Endowment (AFE), whose mission is to further the advancement of education and science in the field of floriculture. Additional support has also be provided by AmericanHort.
What we do! Team members participate in monthly conference calls to assess the state of the greenhouse industry throughout the year. Discussions are used as an educational forum by roundtable members. Grower participation is highly encouraged. Members also collaborate with regional and national grower associations in the organization of educational seminars and workshops for the industry at large.
