Thermal Banking Greenhouse Design

February 4, 2017


Steve Schwen and his family run Earthen Path Organic Farm in Lake City, Minnesota. This video describes a great greenhouse they have built from scratch. The Innovative building is designed to increase the growing season whilst reducing energy costs, especially important given the extremes of temperature that occur in Minnesota.

What’s also very impressive to me is the statements Steve makes re profits. Quoting Steve;

“I look at profits with dollar signs, as only being a very crude measure of the success of your farm or your efforts, Because your profits are in the health of your family, the integrity of your family’s relationship to the community, those are the profits that we forget to measure, I mean maybe it’s a 60’s thing, but in the end we all need to look at our journey on this earth as being connected with our community and start to dissolve the separateness of us and the rest of the community and the separateness of us from the land, we’re not badening the land, we’re learning to dance with it and work with it”
