26' Growing Dome Greenhouse – Golden, CO

Growing Spaces has donated the use of a 26′ Growing Dome Greenhouse for GoFarm’s Farmer Incubator Program. The project is centered around spreading the importance of urban agriculture, providing fresh, local food to the community, and supporting local, sustainable farmers through training and mentorship. The construction of the greenhouse was finished in August 2019 by a wonderful group of local volunteers. The greenhouse uses sustainable and renewable energy technologies and helps extend the short Colorado growing season and provide fresh produce for the community year-round.

The Growing Dome will be managed by Colorado-born farmer, Shannon Harker, who is part of the GoFarm Incubator – a GoFarm program that trains and supports the next generation of farmers. The Greenhouse dome will expand Shannon’s growing season and amplify her education in urban farming through the incubator program. The greenhouse will also act as a source of fresh, local food for the Golden community and surrounding areas, as it will supply food to partnering food organizations, local restaurants, community residents, and other food hubs.

    Are those raised beds cedar?
    Is that toxic to plants

    We’re in Castle Rock and are curious about the site prep for a 26′ and average costs? We have a ~5 to 10° degree slope. Do you know of landscapers in Denver familiar with growing spaces site prep needs and can provide quotes?
