Experimental greenhouses and educational garden of ornamental plants at the Faculty of Biotechnology and Horticulture

A modern greenhouse complex was built in 2007 in place of the previously existing greenhouses. The greenhouse was designed as a multi-bay hall, with a design scheme of "Venlo" — type and a total area of more than 1,500 m2, usable area of more than 1,000 m2 and a volume of more than 9,000 m3, divided into separate cameras. The greenhouse is equipped with sliding parapet tables and crop gutters. Irrigation and fertigation system was designed individually for each of the experimental rooms (cameras). The greenhouse has also computer-aided monitoring and microclimate control system. However, the modernization works in this greenhouse facility begun earlier, in 2002. A foil tunnel with controlled microclimate, media supplying system and control devices were built at that time.

An educational collection of ground ornamental plants is situated by the greenhouses, next to the building of the Faculty of Biotechnology and Horticulture. A very wide range of species and varieties of herbaceous and woody plants is collected here. The decorative garden is divided into thematic sections, including the collection of annual and biennial plants, bulbous plants, spring, summer and autumn perennials, the collection of grasses and ferns, as well as the collection of roses. The flowerbed of seasonal plants and decorative vegetables is established every year here. There are also interesting low-growing tree species, shrubs and dwarf shrubs growing in the garden. A large part of the garden is covered with hedges from different species of deciduous and coniferous plants. In our garden we also present dozens of herb species arranged in the form of a casual flowerbed. Separate quarter is occupied by plant species known from the biblical gardens and in summer this collection is enriched by bucket specimens which overwinter in the greenhouse. Moreover, a rich collection of potted plants, with ornamental leaves and flowers is kept in the greenhouse, in which they can be enjoyed all year round.

There are two theater groups active at this club. The courses of ballroom dancing are also held continuously here. The club's management together with the Programme Council organize concerts and performances with famous artists and bands, but also discos and other forms of mass entertainment. The club "Arka" with the participation of the Student's Council organizes Juwenalia in May and in autumn — at the beginning of academic year — meetings with new students, the so-called "Bean Days".

Sports hall

A modern sports hall of the University of Agriculture in Krakow sets standards for the construction of the 21st century, having a modern, attractive design, at the same time referring to the profile of the university. The green hall is situated within the campus of the University of Agriculture, among the academic greenhouses. The architects created an eco-friendly building with economic form and interesting colors, referring to the plant motifs. Its roof and one of the facades is overgrown with vines and grassy plants, thus significantly increasing the size of biologically active area. Environmentally friendly and cost-effective passive hall is characterized by thermal insulation that guarantees very low energy consumption. The energy demand of this building will amount to only 10 percent compared to typical buildings constructed in Poland.

It is the first in Poland and one of the few places in Europe, which is professionally prepared for education in the field of soil science.

Soil Science Education Center presents 76 original soil sections, which demonstrate characteristic soil types of climate and plant zones of the European continent in the north-south and east-west layout. The soil profiles presented in the museum are original monoliths dissociated and fixed from the slices of soil collected at various places in Europe.
