POC: Yes, you are right! i have been reading a lot lately about this kind of thing, and we will be building a compost GH as an experimental. there are some pretty neat designs out there!
Because we will be using a solar greenhouse and underfloor heatsink type setup i think I will keep the cactus in that GH as it will be part of the house and easy to heat in an emergency.
We also will be using solar, and are going to try our best not to put any oils into the land aside from cars. and electricity obviously gets SUCKED with heat, which is hard on solar systems in a cloudy area for winter.
Gallows, I will be moving about 1 hour from you. I used to live in Comox as well. It would be nice to get in contact you closer to the time i move back to there. sounds like you have a system that works well for you! on a side note, you know of any cactus group/clubs/shows in the area?
