    If these are greenhouses, won’t they be too hot? There doesn’t seen to be adequate air flow. I would like to give, but am concerned about this.

    Actually these hoop houses are covered with plastic that is black on the inside to block light and white on the outside to refect the sunlight. Normal greenhouses use clear plastic which allows sunlight to enter and warm the inside.
