"For Puja and I, everything is connected, and we are ever awed by the complexity and beauty of the natural world. Offering a product which helps people enjoy and support this beauty and the bountiful ways of nature — while growing an abundance of food; is very fulfilling for us."
Our desire, as the founders of Growing Spaces, is to support
others who want to live sustainable, healthy lives. The innovation of our
product came directly out of our desire to live in health and balance. These
greenhouses demonstrate a solar self-sufficiency that keeps fresh food on
the table, even within the challenge of environmental and economic changes.
The Growing Domes handle wind and weather, sustain themselves with only five hours of sun a day. They hold a carefully crafted eco-system inside the strongest structure in the world. The synergy of components within our greenhouses make it possible to have a year round indoor garden.
One of the best ways we can serve the future is to support the work and designs of those intending to “go green” around the world. Neighborhoods are very important in our era and groups who band together can often become more self sufficient and safe in their way of life. Udgar and I spent two careers participating in the growth and development of several communities whose purpose was to demonstrate the viability of alternative methods of energy efficiency in organic gardening and farming, and the disciplines that promote holistic health and personal balance. Each of these proved that the commitment of a group of people whose values form a common ground could increase their quality of life incredibly.
It is our privilege as a small company based on this foundational experience to have provided Growing Domes for schools, intentional communities and neighborhoods, as well as backyard gardeners. Due to the short growing season, our domes were designed for the Rocky Mountains. Our hometown of Pagosa Springs, Colorado has nearly 100 of them. Typically, when someone buys a Growing Dome, the neighbors observe its performance over a few seasons, and then decide to buy one themselves. Therefore, our market spreads demographically in clusters and mostly by word of mouth.
Now more than ever, we feel a responsibility to show that our society can thrive beyond the dependence on fossil fuels that is abusing our natural habitat. According to the latest studies the world may be out of oil and natural gas by 2032 or sooner. This means that our children and grand children will be a part of the quest for alternative energy resources and development that has been a part of our own lifestyle for the last thirty years.
To support them we have created a new paradigm in business that is “part of the solution” of restoring balance for our natural world. The company vision also grew out of the values we hold dear. The innovation of our own company’s product came directly out of our desire to live healthy balanced lives.
Those that are committed to living naturally are encouraged to add the Growing Dome to their lifestyle. They are sold as a kit with instructions to install or we can provide a installation crew or supervisor to deliver and help set up the dome.
We know that the beauty and efficiency of growing in our domes,
creates a natural learning opportunity for children of all ages. There,
as our domes become a living laboratory where kids are learning ”where
food comes from" and the miracle of life is celebrated from seed to
fruit. Because our beginning as a company came from making a “choice
for health,” we have decades of experience to share as a family who
knows that we can all “help ourselves” to increased self sufficiency
and quality of life.
