“The Greenhouse of the Future” outlines the design and step by step building of a radically sustainable passive solar greenhouse built from up-cycled materials (tires – wood – glass bottles) and operates using fully renewable natural energies. By building this greenhouse with your family or your community, you will contribute to a healthier and more sustainable world, reconnect with nature, save money and produce your own local organic food all year-round.
The technologies and concepts that have inspired the design of this greenhouse have been proven by over 40 years of research and development by Michael Reynolds’ Earthship homes as well as the many studies on passive solar greenhouses.
Are you INTERESTED in permaculture, organic food production, self reliance or simply having an outstanding quality of life?
Would you like to LEARN more about radically sustainable technologies?
Would you like to SAVE MONEY by growing your OWN local and organic food, and wipe out pesticides and GMO’s from your diet?
Have you ever DREAMT of being more resilient and self-reliant in a world that is dependent on non-renewable energy?
Would you like to ENJOY the warmth of the sun… your feet in the sand… in the middle of winter, directly on your property?
Would you like to RECONNECT with nature?
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
The vision and the philosophy behind the S.A.F.E. technologies (Safe Autonomy For Everyone)
Essential concepts, techniques, and technologies like: passive solar energy, thermal mass, passive geothermal, passive ventilation, earth tubes, rainwater catchment, AGS, Using recycled and natural materials, and much more…
All the information, steps, and helpful tips you’ll need to build your own Greenhouse of the Future or your very own project inspired by the concept, principals and technologies.
Ongoing research and developments on how to improve those technologies and how to make them more accessible to all.
