RFHS Students Get Going

With the help of many –

42′ Growing Dome is complete!

As far back as I can remember, my grandmother always said “If you want something done right – do it yourself…”

As of today, I thoroughly disagree.

The brand new 42′ Growing Dome greenhouse installed at Roaring Fork High School in Carbondale, Colorado has brought me to this decision.

The project came together with such ease, we owe it to the dedicated project planners, donors,  local volunteers, students, neighbors, and community members who worked together with Growing Spaces Crew to assemble the structure in May.

Lining the beds with straw before filling

Now that the growing beds have been designed and built- 16 students from Colorado University were hosted for a program through the Colorado Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute featuring a workday over at the RFHS Growing Dome.  The day at the Dome included filling the gardening beds inside the Dome.

The students first lined the growing beds with straw, which will eventually break down adding additional nutrients to the soil, and then bring the soil in to fill the beds to about 2 inches from the top.

Next… Planting!
