THE GREENHOUSE OF THE FUTURE
Living in a sustainable way is one of our generation’s biggest challenges. Most people living in major cities have to spend a lot of money on food with high levels of pesticides on their daily diets. Moreover, most of the electric systems are still powered by non-renewable energy sources.
The “Greenhouse of the Future” uses technologies and concepts that have inspired the design of this greenhouse which have been proven by over 40 years of research and development.The main idea of this sustainable low-cost building is to have a place where you can grow your own food and don’t waste valuable resources.
This passive solar greenhouse can be made and works without any heating systems. It is built from free recycled tires and natural materials. Tires are used as walls, filled with a mixture of dirt, water and organic material.
Classic greenhouse polycarbonate plates are placed facing south, to make the most of the hours of sunshine (northern hemisphere).Water is supplied by an effective rainwater collection system. The liquid is stored in barrels inside the installation also helping on the temperature regulation. The rest of the design is made from recycled elements.
