This is the left side of the room. Right side is identical but without the door to the outside.
Chris, I was thinking along the lines of raised beds, with a plastic/ rubber barrier layer along the upper back wall and lower along the bottom edge of the inner wall and a permeable mulch barrier along the front wall and lower edge for drainage. I was thinking of keeping the plants in the pots and nesting them in a plywood shelf and then surrounding the pots with gravel .
The light situation from the windows would not be enough, as they are east facing, so only get morning sunlight. The room does have power though and I can install some LED grow lights. I would however like to switch this area over to solar/ wind.

I haven't addressed the heating of this area yet. It is very well insulated. All 4 walls floor and ceiling. Double glazed windowless ond a good door..
i have a room/building that i keep pheasants and peacocks in. its 24' x 24'  14' tall ceiling  concrete floor with drainage out lets. and full insulated, there is i divider in the center of the room to separate the different birds.
each area also has a 3'x 3' window. that will later allow access to an outside run
I would like to create a more natural habitat by adding some plants and grasses and possibly a couple of dwarf fruit trees to the inside of the room.

anybody have ideas on what varieties would work.

regards Phil
Try heating it up and melting some wax into the joints and handle area.

You'll need to get past the clay and into a sand / gravel vain. The clay will just build up around your point and block it.

a lama is a high ranking Buddhist, very even tempered even mellow. should get on with pigs as they value all levels of life.
Quite common here in Ohio. Sparrows love them.

Death now is so much different than when our grandparents were children. Back then almost any death was a quick one.
I didn't find it hard explaining a death to my children, what I found difficult was justifying the doctors need to prolong life even when there is suffering.

Found these in the back field. I was wandering if these are add able or not.
