Everyone wants to know about me. How about the project instead. The Greenhouse Project is an idea I had after I've seen food prices go up due to fuel prices but when fuel prices came down food prices stayed the same. Also, a store I use to frequent raised prices on everything but their own brand name items, essentially ripping off customers. Far too often people can't afford healthy organic food resorting to what they can afford which is far less nutritious. Far too much food is imported from south of the border, or farther away and not enough grown locally to reduce food miles or pollution. So, I came up with the idea as way to grow organic food year-round in a greenhouse needing no fossil fuels.

China wants more clean energy & eco-cities


The issue of energy could take up a hundred pages or more to do a proper job in covering China’s issues and the building of eco-friendly cities, so only a small picture is presented in this article. The fact that China is looking elsewhere for it’s energy indicates that China has not looked hard enough … Continue reading

Comment on the environment in China


Nature is the only thing that is currently truly sustainable on our planet. There’s plenty of greenwashing going on right now, especially in the U.S.  Greenhouse Project Denver is concerned with growing more local food year round in an almost closed system – where the inputs are minimal and the outputs are much greater. The … Continue reading
