Jianyi Dong from Freshpals Farms in Olds, Alberta is back to talk about passive solar greenhouse design! Jianyi cultivates vegetables year round in a passive solar greenhouse – a greenhouse powered 100 per cent by the energy of the sun! Pretty impressive, right? While conventional greenhouses rely on fossil fuels and artificial heat to stay warm through the winter, Jianyi uses only the heat produced from the sun. Using greenhouse design techniques perfected in China, Jianyi runs the largest commercial passive solar greenhouse in Alberta.
This webinar is a great opportunity for both commercial and hobby greenhouse gardeners to ask questions about passive solar greenhouse design in the Alberta climate. The webinar will be held September 24 at 2:00 PM MDT.
