Walipini Underground Greenhouse

Submitted by christina@lala… on Wed, 06/22/2022 - 18:44

Walipini, also known as sunken greenhouse, underground greenhouse, pit greenhouse, or earth-sheltered greenhouse, is a structure with the growing area dug into the ground. Having the growing area under the ground level gives you the thermal benefits of being cool in warm weather and warm in cold weather similar to a root cellar.

The walipini is seeing a modern renaissance as it allows for crops to be grown in greenhouse like settings, whilst requiring little to no heating, and thus is attractive to subscribers of permaculture and the sustainability movement.
