The Underground Walipini Greenhouse

Here is a interesting green house for cold or adverse environments. It keeps the garden safe, warm/cool, and year round in even very hot and cold environments. Enjoy! :D

With a root cellar attached, this would be a great idea! Thanks Chaos:D

Great PDF file, only thing that concerned me was high heat areas.
In Washington I have property in Chelan, which if any of you have
been there is pretty much a desert, keeping the interior cool enough
for plant life, and properly watered ont top of that might pose a
challenge. for decidous regions though this idea is superb!

Default Study of Walpini Greenhouse Model

Thanks for bringing this style of garden to light. I am now researching various underground gardens for food production, for many reasons: extending the growing season, eliminating genetic drift of GMO crops into organic fields, maintaining purity of pre-hybrid heirloom varieties of food that contain resilient DNA characteristics, plus having the vision of 4 season cropping to maintain local, fresh food supplies, and decentralizing food production, which I believe is physically and philosophically valuable in maintaining self-sufficiency and self reliance. Thanks again

I've been thinking about this for awhile. I've thought about raising tilapia in it along with plants and not having to worry about the temp variations. I was watching the History channel one day and they were talking about how you put pigs in greenhouses during the winter with straw on the floor and as the pigs waste composts in the straw it creates heat which in turn heats the greenhouse.

Might be something else to think about.

Does anyone have a link to the pdf that's NOT on this site? I'm never able to download anything from here - it always tells me to slow down, that I'm trying to download files too quickly and have to wait (but I'm not downloading anything), and then tells me I've exceeded my daily download limit (again, I didn't download anything).

As more people are concerned about their food supply and the costs of food increase, there will be more great ideas like this.
Thanks for sharing.
