Growing Domes in the News
Greenhouse to produce fresh food for Ute Mountain Senior Center
The Ute Mountain Senior Center in Towaoc, Colorado, has built a geodesic dome greenhouse to provide fresh fruit and vegetables for its senior meal program. The greenhouse, which was funded by the American Rescue Plan Act and built by Growing Spaces, features five planting beds, ventilation fans, a pond, and solar panels. The senior center’s head cook plans to grow a variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, and encourages the elders to participate in gardening. The greenhouse is the first of four indoor gardens planned for senior centers in Southwest Colorado by the San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging. The project was awarded $645,000 from ARPA and will be managed by the senior center with help from volunteers. Planting in the greenhouse is expected to begin this spring.
