Winnipeg Solar Greenhouse tour

I've been working on a commercial sized Chinese style Solar Greenhouse project for a couple of years.  I'm hoping to work with a market gardener in Montana to build at least one of these greenhouses to promote year round vegetable growing. Here's a description:Solar Greenhouse Proposal 10.pdf (2,2 MB)

In late April, I spent a day in Winnipeg touring Chinese style solar greenhouses. I met with researchers at the University of Manitoba and then with two market gardeners who use these greenhouses.  It was inspiring to see greenhouses with advanced, healthy plants growing in a cold climate. I've written up my notes and have a bunch of photos of the trip so if you are interested, write me at and I'll send the info to you.
