Climate Battery Greenhouse tour at 7200 feet on a mountain in Colorado!

This is a climate battery greenhouse located at 7200 feet on a mountain in Basalt Colorado. The Colorado Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute – CRMPI – is able to grow tropical plants such as banana trees and other edible fruits and vegetables using only the power and heat from the sun. The greenhouse is able to maintain it’s own heat even in frigid temperatures of -30F / -34.4c by using the climate batteries stored heat from the sun!

  1. Too much manipulating of nature in the name of mimicking her to a point when it's not natural anymore. To imitate this man one must be obsessed and self-centred it seems. Not a good example for some of us who do permaculture respecting nature while we live attending to family and loved ones as well.

  2. Isn't God amazing!! The gentleman in North Dakota who dug 8 feet into the earth to capture the heat from the earth for his green house – grows year round. The trees and plants produce volumes,,, s.o much so that he sells produce to his town! And here is this gentleman using generated heat to keep the greenhouses warm at 7,200 feet!!!… the seeds are sown and the plants know what to do! The Lord gave us the seeds… and they know to grow! Your garden shows your hard work and labor of love. And it shows God's glory!
    Those who work their land will have abundant food!

    Proverbs 28:19
    Thank you for sharing your labor of love! May God bless you richly.

  4. Very impressed by the way you are growing papaya at 7200 feet. I am living in a hardiness zone 9B where only a few days with temperature below zero. Do you think just with in-house climate battery ( no active heating) can grow tropical fruits all year around?

  5. Nice place, we need to look at the facts and numbers. Is it sustainable for the average Joe looking to supply food for their family and community. Not enough sun equals wood burning, and electricity usage period. Its nice to have the time for R&D, most dont have this luxury, we are a long ways from migrating to warmer temps when the snow flies in Ontario Canada. People must learn to eat what can be produced under their local circumstances, this is paramount. We must stop importing food and resources from long distances and start eating whats available local. If we cant move to warmer temps for a myriad of reasons, we have to change our diets to reflect the circumstances. The present way of life is not sustainable, nature will correct this problem.

  6. I'd love to know if you're able to get inside temperatures at night much over freezing in -20C or colder. I'm designing an active solar seasonal thermal storage unit for a greenhouse to get inside temperatures at night to 15'C. any input would be hugely appreciated

  7. really wish there is more info offered on details of the dementions of the various greenhouses, and internal temperatures achieved/maintained with external temps at night… and how much wood they burn each winter, and such. I even tried looking up info online [outside of youtube vids] and couldn't find much more than advertisings…
    The cosmic talk is useful to a point, but what's it really help if there's no "how you can do this too" info offered…
    It ends upbeing just a big brag session, thats brought to you by your local tax payers who provided all his grant money…
    So if its been created by public monies, I can only see it reasonable to expect more free "how to's"….
    just a suggestion..

  8. Many thanks for this video. I might be good to say in the title that you also use wood heating for the coldest periods and not just a "Climate battery" "using only the power and heat from the sun."

  9. DUDE! I am out of here after the first three minutes and he is already repeating hi9mself and stumbling amonst many different trivial things.
