Does anyone have experience or info?
Here are some of my thoughts. Please let me know if I'm off base. I have used baking soda with essential oils for laundry in the past. I want to do this again. I'm also learning to make natural lye soap, but I haven't researched if its safe for the garden yet.
Also, how about grey water storage WITHOUT aeration? Would laundry water be nasty after awhile? Hmmmm....

We decided on using a Chinese design for the exterior, with a climate battery, but I keep wondering, there's all these different schools of thought, why not merge the elements that make the most sense from each? I like the idea of a pit greenhouse especially in our residential neighborhood, so we can grow tall plants without having such a high structure. I love climate batteries, and geothermal and really want to incorporate them both. I've poked around the internet for a hybrid greenhouse that uses both geothermal and a climate battery, but cannot find any that have adopted both means of heating. Is there such a thing? If not, why doesn't it exist?
Thanks for any and all help.

Do you have a link to a simple and reliable tutorial? I'd love to see the process. Though as a project, it would be waaay down the list.
