The Forest Garden Greenhouse - How to design and manage an indoor permaculture oasis

This groundbreaking book by one of North America's most accomplished permaculture designers shows how we can create forest gardens in greenhouses and transform both our homes and our lives.

Author Jerome Osentowski provides in-depth information on construction plans for greenhouses large and small, soil-building techniques, the secrets of successful companion planting, the use of microclimates within and around the greenhouse, and more.

The Forest Garden Greenhouse also includes details on a revolutionary energy-cycling technology -- the "Climate battery" -- that effectively utilizes passive and active solar heat storage to create tropical greenhouse conditions even in cold climates.

Whether your goal is to simply extend the growing season by a few weeks or to build a year-round tropical greenhouse, this book's detailed drawings, photos, and case studies of successful greenhouse projects of all scales will fundamentally change the conversation about growing food indoors.
