Earlier this year, Hugs Café announced that they will be opening Hugs Greenhouse, located at 3054 CR 205 near McKinney and the Trinity Falls development.

The greenhouse will include two covered greenhouses, one open greenhouse and a barn used as a breakroom, storage and office space. The barn will also be used as a studio where employees can learn to make items such as wooden planters, wind chimes and more. In addition to the barn, the greenhouse will have a retail shop by the road.

Hugs teammates started working Aug. 28. They have started filling flats with soil, and next they will start planting plugs. Fall bedding flowers will be for sale each week of October. All the proceeds with go towards the restaurant, expanding the Hugs mission and programs for special needs adults. 469-301-6900. www.hugscafe.org
