Sustainable Greenhouse Design at Denver Botanic Gardens

April 3, 2011 from 1pm to 5pm
Can you create a greenhouse that needs NO supplemental heating year round? – the answer is yes! This greenhouse design, involving stored water as thermal mass and our bountiful Colorado sun, can be used with recycled materials or new.Fresh, organic food year round in Colorado is a sure thing – we have more than enough sun. There’s always something to eat! Learn how you,too, can create your own greenhouse.See More

The digital garden is Leo's Masters Project in digital media through the University of Denver. I assume the times are accurate.

Why don't you post a comment to the Event for the DRR event and see if you can make connections with someone else who might be interested.

Great Links Jason. Those projects are not too different than what Leo Kacenjar did at the Digital Garden on Leetsdale. There is an event at that garden October 16, 5:30 to 7:30 where you could see the success he had.

I will have to re-evaluate my plans for all the branches at my place. I was thinking of chipping them up and using them for pathways. Instead, I think I will look at using them as the base of the bed and supplement with all the free wood chips we can get from the local arborist. Great stuff.

Jason, thank you for your interest in the new Garden at the Double Rainbow Ranch. I will be giving a short explanation of the No Weed, No Water, No Till, Deep Mulch, Drip Irrigated gardening system we are promoting. Kerry Temple-Wood, owner of the property and proposed garden coordinator, will be assessing interest in the garden as a way to gauge the amount of materials she wants to acquire for the key hole sheet mulching. We will also "layout" the initial beds - so there will be a small opportunity to get dirty. The real dirty part will be scheduled for a later date.

If I remember Gaia's Garden, a Hugelkultur is where tree trimmings are buried to act as a water storage system as they decompose. If I remember that right, I have been experimenting with that on my property and I would be interested in how you are thinking of using that concept. Let me know.
