Greenhouse Project–First Work Party

I recently uploaded a crazy 115 photos to Facebook documenting our greenhouse project. After I got finished, I felt regretful that I hadn’t just put an album here, where it is more publicly accessible! We are building a greenhouse intended to house an aquaponics system. It is taking longer than we thought to complete and we’d really hoped we have the aquaponics part up and running by the end of the summer. Instead, we’re still finishing the actual building. It is a 20 x 48 post and beam building with metal and clear plastic siding and roofing.

We have a “work party” cooperative with four families who all live within about 20 miles of each other and who share similar goals with regard to sustainability, simple living, and eco-friendly living. We alternate weekends at each other’s houses working on projects. We started this in September of last year and have had approximately 13 work parties since then. I hope to write more about this in the future, because it has been a remarkable and fulfilling experience.

Anyway, here are some pictures from the first work party in which we worked on the greenhouse:
