Heat from compost part of group’s greenhouse plan
By Treena Hein
Unity Gardens, a group in Indiana, is planning a greenhouse that will use heat from composting.
The group is hoping to building the greenhouse using one of several $10,000 prizes being given away by ‘Chase Bank Community Giving’ (a part of the J.P. Morgan Chase banking system). See details here.
The group is also looking into aquaponics: the ‘Growing Power Model’ in Milwaukee, where they are sustainably producing a million pounds of food (greenhouse produce and fish) on just three acres of urban land. Growing Power has multiple sites and both groups have many educational and sustainability initiatives.
