The Greenhouse of the Future Abundance and Energy Autonomy

Category: Tutorials

"It all started in March 2012 in an Earthship near Taos, in the desert of New Mexico. Many weeks had gone by since I arrived to complete the training of the Earthship Academy, a course on ecological, sustainable and autonomous houses invented by Michael Reynolds. During the lectures, I learned that Earthships did not need to be heated to maintain a stable indoor temperature yearlong despite extreme temperature variations. Often, one has to experience it to really believe it and it's on a cold night that I got up and looked out the window, what I realized astounded me: WOW! How shocked I was when I realized it was -12 °C (10 °F) outside and inside it was 18°C (64°F)! It is important to mention that, at the time, this Earthship was: first of all, under renovation; secondly, due to the limited budget, it was poorly isolated and; finally, it had not been heated for several months! In spite of all this, we felt warm and comfortable in our Earthship. It was great!

After this experience, I started to think about all the implications that this could have: help people become more resilient, autonomous and environmentally friendly. I remembered reading that the largest consumption of energy in colder countries came from the importation of food and, obviously, from domestic heating. At this time, our food travels thousands of kilometers before meeting our mouths. It is great to have access to exotic products, but in the case of a technologic or economic crisis, a war, a natural disaster or anything else that quickly spreads across borders, it is possible that we will no longer have access to any! Also, a lot of diseases are linked to the lack of fresh, organic and local foods.

So I continued to think until a revelation crossed my mind: The farm of the future. THE GREENHOUSE OF THE FUTURE! I told myself: "we must find a way to combine natural phenomena and technologies to create a greenhouse, affordable, environmentally friendly and even simple and fun to build amongst friends. This would allow people to have a little piece of heaven where they could relax, grow organic food, reconnect with nature, sunbathe in the winter and more." This is the tangible and accessible solution I was looking for!"
