New here, and trying to build a walpini very soon. Got the Benson book, but I'm still trying to compute the correct berm angle for December 21. I am at -34.5 latitude, but I don't know how the Benson people got 23 extra degrees for La Paz at 16.5. Anyway, nice to meet all of you. Hope to share and be shared with right away!

Hi Kevin and welcome to Permies.com!

You may want to check out the "greenhouse" forum - there's been some discussion on walipinis there recently. See: https://permies.com/t/31675/greenhouses/forum-walipini-needed
