Cold Climate Backyard Greenhouses: talk & tour
May 5, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Come learn all about extending our growing season with passive solar greenhouse design – a practical and sustainable local solution for our households and community! Begin with an engaging talk by Rob Avis, internationally-recognized teacher and expert in natural systems design. Then hop on a school bus and tour three Calgary backyard greenhouses each using a form of passive solar design. With Rob as guide and interpreter, you’ll learn about the challenges and successes of each and come away freshly inspired to take on a project in your own yard or neighbourhood.
