Subject: Request for applications now open for UMN Deep Winter Greenhouse project!
Interested in experimenting with the University of Minnesota on passive solar greenhouse technology on your farm, community organization, or business in Greater Minnesota? Do you want to learn how to grow crops all year without relying on fossil fuels? Are you interested in helping others learn about sustainable agricultural production technology for year-round production?
If so, then the University of Minnesota Extension’s Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships want to help you build a deep winter greenhouse. Greenhouses will be built according to UMN Center for Sustainable Building Research prototype designs. Awardees will work with University of Minnesota researchers for the first three years to study production and building performance and to host periodic extension events.
