Sustainable and Resilient


Growing More Food Using Less Resources

By now you probably know that a well designed aquaponic system can grow a tremendous amount of food with relatively few external inputs. The problem is most greenhouses are very inefficient when it comes to heating, cooling, and overall energy management. Passive Solar Greenhouses are highly insulated structures that can achieve energy savings ten fold over traditional structures by using structurally insulated panels, a GAHT System (ground to air heat transfer), triple wall poly carbonate glazing materials, solar/wind turbines and proper orientation among other features.  Passive Solar Greenhouses are especially well suited for challenging growing environments such as locations with high altitudes, extreme weather conditions, poor soils or challenging terrains.

So why not combine the best of both worlds?  With a passive solar greenhouse, your aquaponic farm can produce food for you and your customers year-round, in the most energy efficient environment possible.

“A passive solar greenhouse combined with a highly productive aquaponic system will provide the most efficient and resilient year round food production possible.”

Here are the types of students who have attended our Passive Solar Greenhouse Course, and why they signed up:
