Kyle joined the Growing Spaces team in 2015, and enjoys being involved in all the exciting projects and developments happening around here!I graduated from Pagosa Springs High School in 2009 and moved to Gunnison, Colorado to pursue a degree in Environmental Studies. After graduating from Western State Colorado University, I moved back to my home town Pagosa Springs. Since moving back home in 2013, I have been working to develop a farm in Arboles. In my spare time, one may find me backpacking in the wilderness, cruising on a mountain bike, slacklining in the park, or skiing Wolf Creek. I also enjoy creating art when I am not outdoors. The mediums that I enjoy working with are yarn, canvas and paint, and clay. I have been experimenting with aquapoinics and am always excited to share knowledge on the subject with others.

  • I want to buy a green house. I live in Spanish Fork, Utah, and would like to grow lettuce, tomatoes, carrots,
    and other good vegetables. I would also like to grow flowers, that I can plant in my yard in the spring. I would
    like to buy the green house next spring so I can get it all set up for using in the fall. Thanks Paul Snyder

  • Hello. I don’t have a well and so I bring my water in which makes it a precious commodity. I currently have a small grey water garden and am curious if anyone is successfully using grey water with the growing dome?

  • I do love all of your video’s. We have one of the first Growing Spaces domes you built here in Black Hawk, Colorado. (I believe) Elevation 8,200 ft, I am struggling with aphids this winter. But really love seeing your domes thrive. Thanks for sharing

    • I use the gallon size sprayer & fill with water with:
      1 tablespoon of cold pressed Neem oil
      2 teaspoons Dr Bonners Sal suds
      2 teaspoons wintergreen alcohol (Walgreens)
      These can be found at Natural Grocers

      If you spray 2-3 days in a row it helps a lot. I also put out lots of ant bate from Gardens Alive. I am gone a lot so it is a challenge. I always put out fresh ant bate every 2 weeks because we are in a sandy area.
