The solution for millions of backyard and small-scale commercial growers is self-heating solar greenhouses.

Moreover, an in-depth section covers sustainable ways of heating the greenhouse without fossil fuels, including the usage of thermal mass and storing heat underground with a ground to air heat exchanger.

Variations include attached solar greenhouses, earth sheltered greenhouses, plus integrating hydroponics and aquaponics. More than a dozen case studies from across North The united states provide inspiration and demonstrate specific challenges and solutions for growing year-round in any climate.
