I.ve tried & built every type of green building & Super-Insulating method & Material applicable to the Cold/Damp North East, and am continually striving for the absolute best in "Deep-Green" (High-Efficiency Green Building. I also installed & built many variations of Active & Passive Solar Heating, Collector types, Hot water, & PV, as well as small & large pressurized Rainwater Recovery (storage, filtration & delivery) and Irrigation systems, Fish Ponds, and also Mini & Micro Green-Building. ]For the last few years, I've been researching & experimenting with applying Green Building Technology & Materials with Growing Season Extension Methods, with awesome results. I call these "Green-Tech-Gardens".
Many different types of knowledge are required for achieving Sustainability, I'm always looking to learn something new I'm in R&D mode for a new line of Growing-Season-Extension Units & would like to share this technology with sustainably minded people who'd like to grow more veggies. Utilizing a New Green-Building Material,,, an Insulated (Tough-Skin) Panel, that's also Rot-Proof & 100% Recycled,,, and Inexpensive clear poly+hoop or recycled glass, an easy to build kit, or buy a pre-built, "Green-Tech-Garden" (An Insulated/Rot-Proof Raised-Bed Garden on Steroids) that's capable of growing veggies for 3 seasons. These are fairly simple to build and now actually less money than the Plastic ones made in a Chinese Factory. Even without glassing the soil warms up faster & stays warmer than any Raised-Bed Garden. For the Best in High-Efficiency Season-Extension Technology & Sustainability, our High-Tech units can grow veggies all year long,,, the "Geo-Solar Garden-Fortress".
I've been studying Nutrient Dense Gardening & Soil Enhancement, looking to learn more, and more methods of Organic Pest Control, outdoors and in greenhouses.
Hi' I'm an old school Green/Solar Builder, U-Mass Hired Gun/Green-Building Instructor, and an Organic Farmer, continually looking to learn more on growing Organic Veggies, Fruit, Sustainability and share with others.
