Interim management changes for campus and West Madison ARS greenhouses

The following message was recently shared by ARS director Mike Peters: 

Dear Research Stations and Greenhouse Users,

In early May, Lynn Hummel retired from his role as Walnut Street Greenhouse Manager.  I want to thank Lynn for his many years of service and leadership to CALS and the UW Madison.  His knowledge and expertise in managing greenhouse operations will be dearly missed.  We are actively searching for Lynn’s replacement and final interviews will be conducted in May.  It is our goal to announce the new Greenhouse Manager before Memorial Day.  

In the interim if you should need any services or need to request space at Walnut Street Greenhouses, King Hall Greenhouse, or West Madison Greenhouses please email Isaac Kabera ( or Deena Patterson (  They will be happy to assist you with any of your Greenhouse needs.
