Growing Greens on Homestead Scale
The workshop will be divided into two parts.  First, Bob will cover the designs of the greenhouse attached to the home and the root cellar. Participants will learn all the structural and design components, including orientation, materials, glazing, insulation, thermal mass, and hot air transfer. Uses include climate manipulation for plant growth and heating the home and heating domestic hot water. Second, Beth will discuss crops in the greenhouse and in the kitchen: choosing greens, salad, oriental greens and cole crops, and using preparation techniques like braising, wilting and flash-cooking. We'll cover root cellar storage, lacto-fermentation, and creating a rhythm to this style of living.

Instructors: Bob Jennings, a structural engineer by profession, has built various greenhouses and root cellars attached to homes. Beth Ingham is an organic gardener (for 20 years), a Whole Health Educator, and the primary grower on the homestead.
