We could write all day about this AMAZING project!
We will keep it simple and share why we love this:
- We are frustrated by the lack of passive solar design in Calgary - the SUNNIEST city in Canada - and throughout Alberta.
- Producing food year round or extending the seasons currently involves a huge input of non-renewable resources (coal, natural gas, etc) - but with the climate battery in this greenhouse solar energy is stored as heat in the ground!
- It is a student led project by youth - and how awesome is that:?
- This involves and benefits the entire community!
the educational opportunities are HUGE!
