NESEA Green Buildings Open House features Growing Dome® greenhouse
A main interest of this seasons’ tour is the year-round, energy-efficient 33-foot diameter Growing Dome® greenhouse in Thornton, New Hampshire. This year-round geodesic greenhouse can be run completely from solar power, is able to withstand high winds and heavy snow loads, as well as out last most all competitors by standing its ground for many, many years.
Growing Spaces Sales Associates and Dome Owners since 2005, Rick & Joann Vollmer will open the door to their 33′ Growing Dome this Saturday – October 2nd. Joann, pictured in the photo at left along with the mini Dome model, recently gave a presentation on the Growing Dome and its benefits at her local library. Together, the two can answer any questions that come up, while Rick has been a Certified Growing Dome Installer for quite some time now.
Full of plants, veggies, flowers, even an aquatic tank housing water plants as well as fish, their Growing Dome is able to provide them with fresh produce all year round, in New Hampshire.
