How to Design an Energy-Efficient, Year-Round Solar Greenhouse

 _off-grid solar greenhouse

Instructors – Marc Plinke & Lindsey Schiller


Want to grow your own fresh, nutrient dense vegetables year-round? How about growing your own bananas, lemons and guava? Learn how to do this, and much more by creating an energy-efficient, self-sustaining growing environment that feeds you and your family all year.


_1.b banana greenhouseThis full-day greenhouse immersion course will delve into smart greenhouse design. Topics include how to design a super-efficient greenhouse using passive solar strategies, tailoring your greenhouse for an aquaponics system, growing year-round in hard-to-grow climates, powering your greenhouse off-grid, growing advice and greenhouse building plans.


The course will include lunch and a tour of a commercial solar greenhouse (pictured) in the area. Participants will also receive building designs and plans for a backyard energy-efficient greenhouse that can be combined with an aquaponic system ($450 value).




Marc Plinke and Lindsey Schiller co-founded Ceres Greenhouse Solutions, a small company which has become an industry leader in energy-efficient greenhouse research. Currently, Ceres designs and builds solar greenhouses nationwide, ranging from sustainable backyard models to several thousand sq. ft. commercial greenhouses. Over the past several years, Ceres has enabled people to grow bananas year-round in the Colorado Rockies, and specialized in aquaponic greenhouses.
