Here is a small animation of my own personal greenhouse (currently under construction) which will be using a Zaug rocket mass heater to heat the grow beds. The vents should be drawn to exit the structure, but I got kind of impatient.
The greenhouse is 16′ x 20′ with a grow bed on each side. It will be heated with a Zaug Stove for year-round growing.
The Zaug will be triple ported to allow two ports to go in to the clay beds on the sides, and one port out the back for a “priming run.” We use the priming run when the mass is cold. It’s a straight up exhaust run that gives the Zaug a chance to warm up before it has to push exhaust through a cold system. Each port will be on its’ own independent valve.
I’m going to turn one side of the greenhouse in to Aquaponics, having the fish tank under the media tray, and one side regular soil in a grow bed. I’d like to compare the differences in farming methods side by side, while all other environment conditions are the same. I’m leaning towards the Aquaponics set up though. I can’t wait to compare the two harvests.
