Osage Nation Harvest Land
Harvest Land sits on 270 acres of donated land on the southeast side of Pawhuska. Wallace Design Collective provided structural and civil engineering services for a new 44,000 square foot multipurpose building and a 40,000 square foot greenhouse. The new buildings sit on 14 acres and features hoop houses, two aquaponics systems and production of crops that were given to Osage Nation programs. Crops currently grown on the farmland include bell peppers, cantaloupe, cucumber, okra, pumpkins, squash, sweet corn, heirloom corn, tomatoes, and watermelons.
Harvest Land plans on putting in at least eight new raised beds, new greenhouses and converting the existing hoop houses into greenhouses – pending funding. Their hopes are to have five to six greenhouses and have already submitted grants for the climate control equipment they’ll need for the greenhouses.
