Ideas For Designing And Building An Attached Greenhouse

An attached greenhouse is a great feature in any permaculture design because it serves so many functions and is a great way to integrate zone one and zone zero. Your greenhouse can become not only a growing space but also a living space.

  • provides an air lock and living space in colder months
  • is an efficient and convenient work/storage space throughout the year.
