There is a new greenhouse in the Osage Senior Housing complex and its open for all Osage elders. It is open to all Osage senior citizens to grow herbs, plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables. The Grand Opening of the greenhouse was on March 30, where approximately 50 people attended throughout the day. Visitors of the greenhouse received plants donated by the Osage Nation Aquaponics, such as pepper plants and tomato plants. Assistant Principal Chief Raymond Red Corn donated rosemary from his personal herb garden that could also be taken home.  "The goal of the greenhouse is to provide a healthy activity to the Osage Senior citizens living in the senior housing, and those who do not but reside in the surrounding area," said AmeriCorps acting Director Kimberly Cass.
