 In Built Environment, Courses, Featured, Food, Greenhouse, Solar, Uncategorized


Do you want to make a BIG difference in the world growing food, working with nature, getting off the grid, heating your home…or even building your own home!?


Check out this amazing, free online 3-day event on October 1-3 called Your Future in Farming & Homesteading, where I am 1 of 12 speakers sharing my best advice for new practitioners looking to re-design their lives…or at least give them a makeover.

My wife, Michelle Avis, showing off her backyard bounty at our small urban lot in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


During the event, I’m going to be giving a live interview about how to design / build a solar greenhouse. I’ll talk about setting goals, some design Rules of Thumb, learnings from our project and will leave time for Q&A from listeners.

Here I am standing in our 800 ft2 solar greenhouse. Notice the Rocket Mass Heated cob bench on the left hand side.


 But there are also going to be many other wicked speakers with lots of science and entrepreneurial lessons to bring right into your home. Here’s the full list:

  • Stacey Murphy, HOST: Backyard Farming for Community Resilience
  • Leda Meredith: Wild Food – Herbivores Can Hunt Too
  • Janell Kapoor: Using Dirt to Build Community
  • Rob Avis LIVE: Your How-to Manual for Passive Solar Greenhouses
  • Andrew Faust: Designing Your Life with Permaculture
  • Paul Wheaton: Bricks to Build a Better World
  • Meg Paska LIVE: Natural Beekeeping
  • Kevin Egolf: How to Structure a Land Agreement
  • Bee Ayer: Finding an Apprenticeship that’s Right for You

p.s. folks who have been asking for a greenhouse update from me- here is your chance!

p.p.s. for those of you looking for the catch (nothings free, right?) – if you decide that you absolutely loved the virtual conference, you’ll be able to purchase the recordings for later listening. But the live delivery of the virtual conference, from October 1 – 3 is totally pro-bono!
