Yes, geo air thermal greenhouse is the way. I bought an ebook on it and know it should work. I will build one in the future. As for the greenhouse, I like this dome tunnel the best:

Here's another one (I think this was posted in another thread).  Winter temperatures in Alliance, Nebraska can drop to -20°F (the record low is -40°F/C), but retired mailman Russ Finch grows oranges in his backyard greenhouse without paying for heat. Instead, he draws on the earth's stable temperature (around 52 degrees in his region) to grow warm weather produce- citrus, figs, pomegranates - in the snow.

This is the one and there is a better design if you dig further.

He has a clumsy website for mobile phone. Better to use your computer to access it.

Been to Chena Hot Springs before.  Located NE of Fairbanks AK.  One of the colder parts of the state in winter.  They generate 100% of their energy needs along with a geothermal heated greenhouse.  We toured the power plant and GH the last time we were there.  It is a resort, but the owner is big into alternative energy and renewable s.  Here is a link to their renewabl energy part of the website.  https://chenahotsprings.com/renewables/

Good. But they have Hot Springs to use, which is not applicable for most of us. I believe that we could achieve NetZero without using hot springs water. Passive solar, solar waterfalls, geo-air, compost heat plus a few solar voltaic panels - Integration of all that are applicable.
 
They weren't very bright, but they were very, very big. Ad contrast:
