Greenhouse by jim_mcculloch Possibly the weirdest industrial building in Austin. This is the Hornsby Bend greenhouse whose 1.6 hectares of scum ponds are a final stage in the compost production of the Hornsby sewage treatment plant. The liquid separated from the compost, after spending some time in the greenhouse ponds, is used to irrigate a 60 hectare farm. http://bit.ly/2vmKGlZ
