I would love to build one of those. I do wonder what climates they work best in, or at least how far south they would work.
Look for Walipini greenhouses on YouTube. There are people in Tx and Az that have them.
It is a 404 (Not Found) when I try to search for this.
GrannyG, this looks like a good idea.
We have tried a few alternative ways and had much success with them all, but we are getting less and less gung ho so this one ma not happen but nice ot know its there just in case.
BacP I found this not sure if it says or not but it is neato.
Just watched it and to skip to greenhouse 2:18 into video. Looking at that huge hole 12 feet deep in the ground I hope there are no sleep walkers around that place.
Thanks Terri, hope you aren't upset with me. I'm back off the politic for awhile again.
Patch from what I have seen it looks neat.
Your welcome, and there's no reason to be upset with you.
Thanks for the link Meer. I've bookmarked it to watch when I have a chance.
I have watched several of this man's videos. A few years ago he made and sold preparedness kits in tins the size of an Altoid mint tin. He lives in southern Arizona (I cannot imagine living there this time of year), and has done lots with water catchment.
Me too- Not found "ERROR"
All of this is no longer available. I took away all the extra stuff after the .com. This is no longer up and running.
There are instructions here: https://www.motherearthnews.com/org...ilding-a-durable-walipini-greenhouse-zbcz1706
Someone in the comments pointed out 2 errors...on pages 3 and 8. On page 3 it reads that water is denser than rock. Haha. But I'm wondering if they meant the ability of either to hold the heat and in comparison, a rock will hold heat longer than water, will it not?
On page 8 it shows a diagram with winter sunrise in the West, winter sunset in the east. Lol
(Edit to add, in the Benson Report)
404 not found for me too.
I prefer a polytunnel to a greenhouse, easy to make one out of found materials.
Do you have photos, or a link or copy & paste to share?
