The Forest Garden Greenhouse: How to Design and Manage an Indoor Permaculture Oasis

Tuesday | January 24, 2017 | 7:00 pm — 9:00 pm

Jerome Osentowski will give a slide presentation introducing his new book, The Forest Garden Greenhouse. In this groundbreaking book, one of North America’s most accomplished permaculture designers presents a wholly new approach to a very old horticultural subject. Osentowski shows how bringing the forest garden indoors is not only possible, but doable on unlikely terrain and in cool climates, using near-net-zero technology. Different from other books on greenhouse design and management, this book advocates for an indoor agriculture using permaculture design concepts—integration, multi-functions, perennials, and polycultures—that take season extension into new and important territory, transforming our homes and our lives. With detailed design drawings, photos, and profiles of successful greenhouse projects on all scales, this inspirational manual will considerably change the conversation about greenhouse design. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
