Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership Comes into View

GGP conceptual drawing

Last year we shared with you the vision for Pagosa Springs’ Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) and how this sustainable movement was poised to change our community in big and beautiful ways. We are excited to post an update with a rendering of the proposed project and an overview of the design. This is all really coming into view and is very encouraging for everyone involved.

Kyle joined the Growing Spaces team in 2015, and enjoys being involved in all the exciting projects and developments happening around here!I graduated from Pagosa Springs High School in 2009 and moved to Gunnison, Colorado to pursue a degree in Environmental Studies. After graduating from Western State Colorado University, I moved back to my home town Pagosa Springs. Since moving back home in 2013, I have been working to develop a farm in Arboles. In my spare time, one may find me backpacking in the wilderness, cruising on a mountain bike, slacklining in the park, or skiing Wolf Creek. I also enjoy creating art when I am not outdoors. The mediums that I enjoy working with are yarn, canvas and paint, and clay. I have been experimenting with aquapoinics and am always excited to share knowledge on the subject with others.

  • I took high school students to the groundbreaking a few years ago, actually about 4 years ago. I am really looking forward to this project coming to fruition. It’s going to be fantastic!

  • I would like to get involved at a community level. I would like to get information on the business planning and financing of a similar project within First Nations Communities. I have 6 acres to work with and would like to get familiar with a co-op opportunity. I would provide the land as equity and find others with similar interests. Something I can bring to my community as a plan for future food security as well as the Educational and Financial opportunities….

  • Sounds very good!

    I am working in communitycultivation project in central Finland. Just wanna tell how inspired i am about this. If you can have this Dome in Alaska, i think i have some hope in Finland.

    Thankyou for the great work
