ABOUT THE GREENHOUSE

This is a unique opportunity to utilize some amazing infrastructure for year round food production!

This passive solar greenhouse located just outside Salmon Arm is approximately xx ft x xx ft. It was built xx years ago based on a design from the Solviva system. Water flows through a south facing wall, fed from a large cistern. There is a wood burning stove for extra heat in the winter, as well as space for animals for the same function. Fans, vents and shade cloth are all in place for summer time growing. There are xxx raised beds filled with soil and ready to use, and the space could certainly be more optimized for higher productions and yields. There is a setup for seedling starting, including shelving and grow lamps. There is irrigation lines, a drip system in place and an automatic watering system, which was never installed

There is also a 100 x 100 ft garden available for outdoor growing. The soil was amended with many loads of compost as the soil texture is very sandy. There is a water system available.
