Greenhouse Chronicles

Our exploration into greenhouse gardening is a tale of adaptation, learning, and growth. In our quest for a year-round harvest, we’ve embraced two distinct greenhouse models: the subterranean walipini and the versatile cattle panel greenhouse. These structures are more than just spaces for our plants to thrive; they are testaments to innovation and resilience in the face of the ever-changing climate.

We invite you to join us on our greenhouse journey. We share the lessons we’ve learned, the challenges we’ve overcome, and the successes that have made it all worthwhile. From the initial blueprint to the daily joys of harvesting, we provide insights into what it means to build and nurture these green spaces. This is not just a guide; it’s a narrative of our personal experiences, designed to inspire and inform your own greenhouse adventures.

Explore the diverse aspects of greenhouse gardening with our selection of resources. Whether you’re captivated by Eliot Coleman’s approach to unheated greenhouses or curious about self-sufficient heated ecosystems, our compilation of links offers a pathway to discover the various facets of gardening within a greenhouse.
