Growing Spaces Operational Updates for COVID-19

Growing Spaces is still open for business!

  • Current production lead time is 8 weeks
  • Growing Spaces Installation is available in early August

We hope our wonderful community of Growing Dome Owners and Enthusiasts are staying safe and healthy in this critical time. As a Critical Manufacturer of Agricultural products Growing Spaces is exempt and we are continuing to fabricate and ship new Growing Domes at our shop in Pagosa Springs! After expanding our shop last year we have plenty of space to stay 6′ apart from our co-workers and have implemented all the necessary social distancing requirements.

Growing Dome Advisers are also still available by phone, email ([email protected]) or by filling out our Contact Form. They are working remotely, so please be patient if there are some delays in our response. We miss our daily team lunches and staff meetings, but we want to stay healthy so we can keep providing Growing Domes to customers who want to improve their well-being by growing their own food.

Events and Tours

Our Spring Growing Dome Tours and Events are all postponed pending lifting the stay-at-home order and allowing public events. We will update individuals on the RSVP list and our events page as we know more. Starting April 27th, we are hosting limited Growing Dome Tours in Pagosa Springs and Golden during the new Colorado safer-at-home order. Please call ahead for an appointment. Masks and Gloves are required. To respect the safety of our customers, we are not arranging personal tours at customer-owned Growing Domes at this time.

We are also donating all of the produce from our Growing Domes to local food banks, both in Pagosa Springs and from Golden. In the meantime, please enjoy these videos of the GoFarm dome in Golden and a Day in the Life of our lead gardener in Pagosa Springs. It goes without saying that the more we can be self-sufficient in our daily lives and in our communities, the better.

Production Schedule

Due to the high demand for Growing Domes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, new shipments are currently booked out to early August.  We realize that many people were waiting to visit a Growing Dome during one of our spring events or by taking a personal tour before making a purchase decision. If attending a Growing Dome tour was the last step in order for you to make your purchase decision, and you would like to get started on your project, you can still put a 50% deposit down to hold your ship date.  We will then make every attempt to schedule the event or a personal tour before your dome ships.  The deposit is fully refundable if you change your mind at least one week before the scheduled ship date.

Installation Schedule

Our installation schedules have been more impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We started doing field installs in late May, and currently have availability in August. Call to check availability, but we reserve the right to change the schedule to protect the safety of our crews and our customers.

Customer self-installs are also a great option during this time, especially if you are quarantined at home and need a project to keep you busy. Or to help local businesses who may be impacted, hire a local contractor, carpenter or handyman to build your Growing Dome. With the increased demand for self-installs and knowing that many contractors work weekends and longer hours, we just started an after-hours extension for installation questions.

  • 970-731-2120 or 800-753-9333
  • Mon – Fri 8am – 5pm Mountain Time dial Extension 204 (Matt Deguise)
  • After hours dial Extension 218 (Rodney Volkmar)

Part Orders

For those in and around Pagosa Springs, we are only accepting part orders by phone.
