Off-Grid Greenhouse: Two Indoor Gardens at 9,000 ft. Elevation.
Does off-grid gardening seem impossible? Mission: Wolf accomplishes mission impossible. Not one, but two, Growing Dome off-grid greenhouses at a staggering 9,000 ft. Their secret? Not green thumbs. Wolves.
Mission: Wolf proves truly unique. The wolf sanctuary in Westcliffe, CO, serves not only as a refuge for wolves, but a creative education space for visionaries like Kent Weber, founder of Mission: Wolf.
“We don’t let anyone buy their way in here or come here because they have more knowledge than someone, it is simply open to anybody at anytime that can simply find us.” -Kent Weber
Mission: Wolf has one mission: education.
They believe in hands on learning to inform visitors on the beauty of wolves and importance of sustainable living practices like off-grid gardening.
“That’s the one thing at Mission: Wolf. We try to let every person that comes here, physically, get their hands dirty.” -Kent Weber
Whether people visit for a day or seeking a longer stay, many find personal growth and development inevitable.
Likewise, as Mission: Wolf continues to grow their off-grid operation, the Growing Domes became Mission: Wolf’s first structure made of brand new materials.
“We use all recycled materials. I have for thirty-two years until I bought a Growing Dome.” -Kent Weber
Mission: Wolf knew that their philosophies aligned with the Growing Spaces philosophies of working with nature.
The self sufficient features of the Off-Grid Growing Dome Greenhouse allow for off-grid gardening at Mission: Wolf. They provide produce for visitors, community members, and even the wolves all year round.
