The Plant is home to about a dozen like-minded businesses which are rooted in the green economy. Take a walk through Screech’s hydroponic greenhouse operation, and see Piedmont Biofarm, which specializes in the development of bio-regionally appropriate seeds. See Piedmont Biofuels, North Carolina’s premier biodiesel manufacturer, along with our bio-diversity project, our constructed wetland, and our solar double cropping prototype. Carolina Wormcastings and Green Door Builders are in the complex as well.

Whether your interest is science, sustainability, or local economy, we guarantee that a tour of the plant will leave you thinking differently about the way industry inhabits this garden planet.
Bring the kids or the in-laws when they are in town when you are looking for an interesting way to spend part of the day. Tours last about one hour with plenty of time afterward for questions and answers.

Tours are sponsored by the BioNetwork BioBusiness Center.
