Small farmers and growers are extending their growing seasons and increasing production through the use of the Growing Dome® greenhouse.
By partnering with Growing Spaces®, greenhouse growers are able to learn about growing in harsh conditions as well as organic gardening tips. The Growing Dome with its energy-eﬃcient solar greenhouse allows small farms to start their plants earlier and can even grow vegetables and plants in the winter!
“The Growing Dome allows us to have all the fun things people want to eat all year round…tomatoes, cucumbers and basil. It’s really easy to put together…it’s like Legos with a socket wrench…and things just want to grow!” – Kendra, Executive Director, Cloud City Farms, Leadville, Colorado
Inside the friendly confines of a Growing Dome, plants don’t have to fight against nature and can use all of their energy to grow! Heads of cabbage and cauliflower will grow to the size of a basketball! Not having the stress from being outside also enhances their flavors and avoids bitterness.
“We grow all kinds of annuals and perennials — both herbs and vegetables — to sell to organic gardeners as starter plants. The dome has performed very well; we love the atmosphere created by the sun and plants.” – Mary Kay Carpenter, 33′ dome owner and small farm owner
Community Assisted Agriculture is a growing trend in neighborhoods across America, where consumers can get their product directly from local organic farms. This both supports the local organic agriculture industry, as well as providing families with a healthy and sustainable food source. Many CSAs are using Growing Dome Greenhouses to extend their growing seasons and improve yields.
“Our 26’ geodesic dome kit from Growing Spaces utilizes passive solar technology and unique undersoil heating tubes in raised beds. These features help us grow vegetables, herbs and citrus year round. The dome is the heart of the farm where the veggie starts stay warm in late winter and friends and family gather to enjoy the space” – Amanda, Dome Grown Produce
