Dome Greenhouse Projects You Need to See
Growing Dome Updates from Shawnigan Lake School in British Columbia
The last time we caught up with The Shawnigan Lake School, they were getting very close to completing their project. They have come a long way since then. Check out the video below for updates on their project.
The Urban Farm Podcast
Growing Spaces has been featured in a unique series of five Podcasts by The Urban Farm. They start the series by hearing from the founders of Growing Spaces, then they have three episodes from people just like you that are using Growing Domes to grow food for their community, and they wrap up the week hearing the vision of the new owners. The podcasts are available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and on their website. See links and descriptions below.
In the first of five episodes, we hear from Puja and Udgar Parsons, the founders of Growing Spaces. They give us a peek inside their geodesic dome greenhouse kits, detailing how they work and describing the features that improve upon a traditional greenhouse.
We hear from Eric Andrews, who is using a forty-two-foot Growing Spaces Grow Dome to educate and inspire the members of his Detroit community. Eric’s excitement is contagious as he shares the incredible story behind the nonprofit he co-founded and tells us how the dome will contribute to its mission in a new way.
We hear from longtime friend of Growing Spaces and Air Force veteran, Andrew Trujillo whose seeds of inspiration were planted in him as a child. When those seeds began to sprout as an adult, he watered and nourished them by connecting with and learning from lots of other gardeners.
We hear from Wallace Kirby and Boe Luther who have made it their mission to transform life and land. Their non-profit community garden in Washington D.C. is used as both an educational classroom and a way to increase the amount of food they can give back to the community. You will be inspired by their transformational stories, especially their own.
In the last of five episodes, we hear from Liz and Lem Tingley, whose passion for health and sustainability led them to Growing Spaces. They fill us in on how they came to be the new owners of the business, the amazing impact their geodesic Growing Domes are having on the communities where they are installed, and the sense of personal fulfillment they have experienced in running the business.

The Amazing Growing Dome by Ron Young In Local Dirt Magazine:
Check out this issue of Local Dirt magazine where they discuss the Growing Domes and Arctic Acres, titled The Amazing Growing Dome, “We were able to Grow Veggies well in the late fall when our regular outdoor garden was long gone,” Ron Young said about his Growing Dome. He also recalls Udgar Parsons description of the first time he set foot into a dome, “to hear him tell the tale is inspiring. He walked in to the bio-dome from the barren frozen landscape of the wintery Rocky Mountains….and into a tropical paradise.” To see the article,click here.
