147 A Geodesic Greenhouse — Year-Round Gardening at 6000 Feet

pm147_150.jpgIn Colorado it’s cold for much of the year, but inside this cozy dome greenhouse, the plants are growing happily. Take a grand tour with Buckhorn Gardens manager and permaculturist Breigh Peterson: the greenhouse structure with its interplay of light and water, warmth and air; curving raised beds of vegetables and flowers; fish tanks moderating the temperature; vertical trellises and shelves to use vertical space. Outdoors a huge garden of row crops and a young orchard are complemented by free-roaming chickens and ducks. (buckhorngardens.blogspot.com)

The geodesic dome greenhouse kit can be found at Growing Spaces.

    Another inspiring conversation. It’s nice to see small scale farming that works year around in such a cold climate. Yesterday, I was motivated to prepare some flower boxes for growing vegetables. Although it is a nice color, I am a little worried that the compost I made is a little too strong. Well, we’ll soon see if something can grow in it.

    I keep coming back to this show and the other with Kris Holstrom. So many ideas to integrate into one’s version of a cold-weather growing environment. Function, beauty, resourcefulness, cycles, multiple purposes. I greatly appreciate such examples that can allow many many more of us to grow much of our (and others’!) food year-round. Thank you everyone:)

    One of my dreams is to become much more self sufficient and I find this show so inspirational in that respect. I keep thinking ‘Well if in that cold climate they achieve what they have, then I don’t really have any problem’
    Please keep it up!
