Growing Tropical Fruit In Idaho…Natural Geothermal Greenhouses

Onsen Farms on Facebook is the place to go if you want to see amazing greenhouses heated with hot water springs…no electricity involved! They also cool and warm their homes with the water! We will be doing more in this series as we couldn’t show it all in one video. They are setting up a school to help others learn about these systems. Go say hi on facebook and let them know we sent you!

    It’s too bad you planted orinoco bananas they are sooooo basic, you could have had something nice like Namwah or Apple. it’s quite the greenhouse. Lots of shade I notice πŸ™

    I saw (and felt!) warm rivers while in Iceland and nearly all of that country’s energy is generated via geothermal means — lots and lots of hot springs in Iceland. You find a lot of shallow "hotpots" (what we could call hot tubs) in people’s backyards all heated naturally. I didn’t know there were places (besides Yellowstone) in the US where such resources existed. Very interesting! Too bad hot springs aren’t more prevalent so more people could tap into (bad pun intended!) them for systems like this.

    I’m sooo happy to see how your channel has grown. It wasn’t explosive, you did it over years by blood, sweat, and tears and never gave up. I’m a huge fan of how hard you worked on it and LOVE so many of your videos. You’re a mentor to me and my channel and I hope someday to make videos as good as yours…. I’m learning… slowly…

    So, did you get to go to the neighbor’s place with the older established citrus trees?

  12. cody cheney on December 4, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Is this the green houses that are just outside of Hagerman ? I know that when my parents lived there that they could get lemons and all kinds of great fruits as well as used the hot water for everything ! I just wish that I could remember the name of the owners !
