Many urban communities do not have access to affordable, healthy organic produce for their residents. To resolve this communities have banded together to find empty lots in their neighborhood to build community gardens. The Growing Dome® will enable residents to grow organic food year-round, and through the building of the Growing Dome empower the community and provide a permanent place for everybody to gather. The Growing Dome can not only improve access to organic food, but provide community education, job training and farmer incubation for urban agriculture growth and development.
In many parts of the world, neighborhood and community gardening is a popular way to eat healthy, connect with one another, and become educated on nature and gardening. But this trend is just starting to pick up in America.
Over the years, our larger Growing Domes have been a central place for dozens of schools and communities in their garden project. Our community greenhouses have provided a living classroom and central hub of activity. But they can be more – they can offer refuge and a cost-effective alternative to local growers who wish to grow organic produce sustainably and efficiently.
Our community greenhouse dome kits are designed for this purpose. We enable farmers to supply their community’s demand for organic produce and get bigger, healthier yields throughout the year. With its passive solar design and incredible strength, your community will have a thriving year-round garden, and you can reap the rewards of your investment in no time.
All you need to do is contact us, send us the details of your greenhouse site and plans, then we’ll give you a personalized quote. Once you receive your dome kit and start assembling, our technical support team will be available whenever you need help. We will also send manuals, demos, and projects for inspiration.
There are also many community garden grants available for community greenhouse projects.
Our 42-foot diameter Growing Dome is the most popular size for community gardens to optimize bed space and allow for ADA access.
