Filling the Floor and Building Planting Beds: June/July

Chris Carnevale and members of the Maroon Corps volunteers joined us to move almost three truckloads of soil into the Growing Dome to level the floor, before we built the planting beds.  Riley Blacksmith donated most of the cost of making the planting bed brackets you see here, and Valley Lumber gave us a great price on the rebar, u-bolts and corrugated metal.  We hope to complete the planting beds, fill them with soil and plants, build the aquaculture tanks, and wire the climate battery thermostats and fans, all before a Community "Thank You" Potluck we plan to hold from 5 - 8 pm, Sunday, August 1.


  1. Looks great! Posted the blog link and story from Post Independent at www.GeodesicDome.Info. Keep up the good work and blog progress reports.

  2. Looks great how you are building your Greenhouses from scratch. I also read similar thing about Greenhouses What a great article this is, pretty interesting and learned a lot from it! Will be recommending the site to friends and Colleagues. Keep up the good work !

  3. The greenhouse looks fantastic, MT! I love the way y'all built your raised beds - the shapes are so organic and curvaceous. It's looking good, man - I look forward to seeing more as things continue to develop and the seasons roll on.
