Abstract:

With over a hundred black and white photographs, as well as detailed diagrams, THE BIODOME GARDEN BOOK describes how to construct and maintain a unique, self-contained, passive solar greenhouse and aquaculture unit that needs no electrical ventilation or humidifying system. Unlike the usual greenhouse structure, the Biodome Garden is a design of superior strength, engineered with a high degree of structural integrity--an organic system capable of supplying animal and vegetable protein and nutrients, while also absorbing, storing, and radiating heat for a naturally humidified, moisture-retaining, weed-free, "potting soil" garden that includes a totally wind-powered ventilation system.
