Greenhouse Design and Management:
A Permaculture Perspective

Special Monday Intensive Workshop
with Jerome Osentowski, Founder & Director,
Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute

September 4, Monday
10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Hot Springs, Montana.

Jerome is author of "The Forest Garden Greenhouse - How to Design and Manage an Indoor Permaculture Oasis, the foremost book on permaculture greenhouses. Jerome has extensive experience with greenhouse growing at 7200` in the Colorado Rockies.  He has created tropical and Mediterranean climates and plantings in his greenhouses.  He invented a climate-battery heating system which he will talk about at the workshop.

Jerome is in Hot Springs for the Inland Northwest Permaculture Convergence and will stick around for an additional day to offer this special workshop.

The workshop will be based around designing the Mother Greenhouse project in Hot Springs. The goal being an educational and production greenhouse for the Salish & Kootenai Confederated Tribes using geothermal water on tribal land.  The project currently has a hoophouse but it needs a plan. Jerome will do power point presentations on greenhouse management so the workshop will be valuable for anyone interested in greenhousing. Part of the workshop will be held at the Mother Greenhouse project by the old tribal bathhouse and part will be at a nearby indoor venue.

Workshop fee: $50.
Free to tribal members.

Here is a youtube where he shows off some of his Colorado greenhouses.

Jerome Osentowski lives in a passive solar home he built at 7200 feet above Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley. Director and founder of Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute and a permaculture designer for thirty years, he has built five greenhouses for himself and scores of others for private clients and public schools in the Rockies and beyond. He makes his living from an intensively cultivated one acre of indoor and outdoor forest garden and plant nursery, which he uses as a backdrop for intensive permaculture and greenhouse design courses. Among his accomplishments is hosting the longest-running Permaculture Design Course in the world, now at twenty-nine years running.
