Compost Greenhouse

Compost Greenhouse
New Alchemy’s Compost Greenhouse was built to use that heat in the winter in a greenhouse instead of burning fuel.

Newly-built compost piles heat up in the center for several weeks, steaming hot sometimes. A sequence of multiple compost piles in bins created continuous, steady heat, which enabled many kinds of crops to grow over many winters. This bioshelter concept works best where a constant supply of compost materials are available nearby.

For more information, read The NAI Composting Greenhouse Report, published 1986.
