Season Extension and Thermal Banking Greenhouses

Filed under: Featured Farms and Farmers — posted by Sharon at Begin Farming Ohio on January 29, 2010 at 1:11 pm

A video description by a Minnesota farmer is available to introduce you to thermal banking (the storage of heat that accumulates during the daytime, especially on sunny days) as a heat source to keep greenhouse beds warm during cold periods. Funding by a SARE Farmer-Rancher Grant, Steven Schwen is in the beginning phases of his project. Go to http://www.sare.org/publications/fromthefield_schwen1.htm
