DIY Greenhouse 200 Dollar Homemade Solar Gardening towards Self Sufficiency Do It Yourself Organic Designing an underground greenhouse I've written previously about a couple of other insulated greenhouses, so I thought I'd focus here on what makes Oehler's design different. The most obviously unique feature of Oehler's greenhouse is the cold sink --- a lower aisle near the front. The original purpose of the cold sink was to give Oehler head space on the downhill side of the greenhouse without requiring so much excavation on the uphill side. But, as the name suggests, this lower aisle also allows cold air to pool away from the plants. Using the earth as insulation and thermal mass is another difference between Oehler's greenhouse and many others you'll see. Another design factor Oehler brought up is the angle of the glazing. Finally, Oehler recommends that we learn from his mistakes and provide much more ventilation than he originally planned for. Want to be notified when new comments are posted on this page?

DIY IKEA Shelf In-Home Aquaponics - Planted Space Dubbed "Malthus," this Ikea-hacked project by Conceptual Devices pieces together a 100g fish tank, plastic grow beds, a pump and piping onto an IKEA Broder shelf, with wheels. Malthus is designed to be an in-home unit, and to grow one meal a day, a portion of fish with a side of salad. If you don't know yet, aquaponics is basically hydroponics + fish in a sustainable loop. Forming the width of two small refrigerators, this in-home aquaponics system is designed for "the next generation kitchen or living room," hoping to grow food right next to where you cook it. All elements of the unit can be found in home improvement stores, the shelf and structure are from IKEA, the water pump, LED strips, mechanical timer, and tubing can be found readily in any retail chain. Malthus #01 was built late last year for the Nordic Environmental Social Sciences Conference, and now sits in the Zurich office of Conceptual Devices. Have your own DIY aquaponics setup you'd like to share with us?

How to Turn a Pallet into a Garden Good news and bad news. I had planned to film a short video showing you how to make a pallet garden, but the weather didn’t cooperate. I was stapling the landscape fabric onto the pallet when it started drizzling and got really windy. So keep reading my pallet loving friends, instructions on how to make your own pallet garden are just a few lines away… Find a Pallet The first thing you need to do is–obviously–find a pallet. Don’t just take the first pallet you find. Collect Your Supplies For this project, you’ll need the pallet you found, 2 large bags of potting soil, 16 six packs of annual flowers (one six pack per opening on the face of the pallet, and two six packs per opening on the top of the completed pallet garden), a small roll of landscape fabric, a staple gun, staples, and sand paper. Get Your Pallet into Shape Once you’ve dragged your pallet home, give it a once over. Let the Stapling Begin! Lay the pallet face down. Now for the sides. Now for the Fun Part–Planting!
