    FREE WEBINAR with ROB AVIS!

    What you learn in the webinar:

    • Why setting goals is crucial to the entire design. Most people get this part wrong and it sets them off in the wrong direction and wastes thousands of dollars.

    • How glass/glazing technology has changed dramatically in the last decade, and why this has completely changed what it is possible to grow within a passive solar greenhouse.

    • Incredible low-tech ways to heat your greenhouse while having a hottub or sauna.

Whether you are just getting started and want to grow your own food or you are a full on permaculture enthusiast, this course, taught by professional engineer Rob Avis, will give you the tools you need to design your own passive solar greenhouse. Of course, thanks to the plans available during this course, you can call a local civil engineer or carpenter to build your greenhouse and enjoy this new lifestyle!

    Everyone can agree that owning a home, aside from being a long-lasting financial investment, is also the foundation upon which one builds their life. Why not make it count as a twofold investment by boosting your quality of life to the next level? The addition of a passive solar greenhouse can help you do just that. With a little effort, you can lower your overall energy cost and reduce your grocery bills at the same time!

    When I have enough money to buy my own land, I'm going to build a wofati, with a greenhouse like this attached. So says me.

    Nuts! I was interested in this but a little hesitant due to the price. I wanted to make sure this wasn't just shiny wrapping paper around freely available info.

    Finally got around to watching some of the preliminary free videos and was quite impressed. Went to sign up and realized the deadline was passed for sign up. Bummer! Fingers crossed the lectures become available later.
