Event Description

Forget the cold. Learn how to bring the sub-tropics to New England!  Jonathan will share his story of building a bioshelter that produces year-round food incorporating whole ecologies into the design. He grows plants like tree collards, figs and citrus in his shelter, well-insulated from the cold. Water supports thriving aquaponics systems with fish, clams, aquatic plants and vegetables. Hardy greens sweeten up during the winter months for delicious March salads. All inside a building made with recycled materials, and powered by the sun.
