Solar Seminar: Cultivating Community – The Invermere Community Solar Greenhouse

February 24, 2011 - 2:00am

An evening presentation by Bill Swan – Greenman Sustainable Solutions

In response to the growing interest in local food security, healthy food in schools, and the overall sustainability of our agriculture systems, 300 community volunteers in Invermere BC teamed up to build a 300 sq. ft. greenhouse.  It is now producing both food and sustainability programs for school and community audiences.  Bill Swan, Community Greenhouse Project lead, will discuss how the project was developed including the many social, technical and logistical challenges and successes the project team encountered during the design, construction and operation of this successful initiative.  This is part of a three seminar series on solar greenhouses sponsored by Alberta Agriculture.

Cost is free. No reservations necessary. Seating is first come, first served. Free refreshments at 6:30 PM.
