It has been a busy, bustling summer for Growing Dome lovers. Backyard, school, and community gardens are on the rise; and we couldn’t be more excited. To celebrate, we decided to share some recent articles and fun stories that feature Growing Spaces and Growing Domes. We are so proud to be featured in these six amazing articles and blogs.
The Growing Spaces Team has been working with Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs for over two years on this greenhouse dome project, and we were very excited to see it come to fruition this summer. The greenhouse will extend the growing season and benefit multiple programs including their unique sustainability studies curriculum.
This TV News spot features an 18′ Growing Dome Greenhouse at St. Alban’s High School in West Virginia. They were able to build the greenhouse with a school garden grant from Toshiba America Foundation, but are still raising money to build the gardening beds inside the Growing Dome.

Chef Daniel Joly, the owner of Mirabelle Restaurant in the Vail Valley, discusses how he uses his Growing Dome Greenhouse for farm-to-table dining year-round. It also describes the benefits of the Growing Dome over traditional greenhouses, especially in extreme weather as we get here in the Rocky Mountains.
Growing Spaces’ customer Brian Dillon was featured in an episode of Y On Earth, an agricultural stewardship and sustainability podcast, by Aaron W. Perry. Brian discusses how he recovered from a traumatic brain injury by reading, meditating and gardening! He also shows us his large variety of sub-tropical fruits, veggies, and herbs in his greenhouse. Aaron also recently visited Growing Spaces in Pagosa Springs to get a closer look at how we operate, so look for another episode featuring Growing Domes soon.
Our friends at the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership were featured in the Audubon of the Rockies Newsletter after creating a new bird-friendly garden in downtown Pagosa Springs. Volunteers from the Weminuche Audubon Society, Mountain High Garden Club, CSU Extension Master Gardeners, and the GGP all gathered to plant locally and regionally native plant species at the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership site.
GoFarm Annual Harvest Dinner
This summer, Growing Spaces donated a 15′ Growing Dome for GoFarm’s annual fundraising auction. GoFarm is a local Colorado community supported agriculture organization dedicated to increasing the supply of and access to affordable, fresh, healthy, local food in Colorado. Bidding was fierce, with the two final bidders driving the price up to $9,150!
