Our Wood Heated Greenhouse | Heating An Off Grid Winter Garden Greenhouse in Canada year round food

This is a huge step for step us towards our self sufficient goals. A four season, year round greenhouse heated with wood. It’s a tough thing here in the north. A winter garden in the north might be considered impossible by some folks. Heating a greenhouse is not a simple task. There are many options to explore. We’ve experimented with how to heat a greenhouse in the past. Heating our greenhouse with compost. Thermal mass using large barrels and bins full of water. We’re now moving on to heating our winter greenhouse with wood. In the future we’ll add both compost heat and thermal mass heat back into the mix, but now that we have a woodstove installed in the greenhouse, we can get to work on some early crops, growing food in the winter in a greenhouse. The wood stove is rated for about 10 times the size of our greenhouse.

    Great job! I can’t wait to get my greenhouse. Maybee 2021 will be my year. We have a blower like yours set with a themostat. It blows hot air on and off so no need to flip a switch. Maybee that could be an option for the colder nights instead of having it blow ongoing? Don’t know just putting that out there.

    This is something we will definitely want to build in the future. So great.

  17. Thomas Schauss on October 3, 2021 at 8:37 am

    Awesome

  18. chris m on October 3, 2021 at 8:41 am

    I have a some what similar idea. i need to get my hands on some steel barrels to perimeter my wood stove to act as a heat sink. so if overnight when the wood stove goes out the retained heat in the water filled barrels will keep the cold out.

  19. pam t on October 3, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Try one of those stove fans

  20. Jim Dockrell on October 3, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Things are heating up down on the wilderstead.

  21. Tropical Homestead on October 3, 2021 at 8:48 am

    And the plan is to get up I the middle of the night to stoke the fire so the plants don’t freeze? Genuinely curious…

  22. My Slice Of Heaven on October 3, 2021 at 8:48 am

    This building has already gone from chicken coop πŸ˜‚ to green house to sauna. That’s what I call multi functional. β˜ΊπŸ‘

  30. TheCanadianBubba on October 3, 2021 at 9:03 am

    If you seal all the gaps you will need to keep the door open and remove all that flashing to keep from cooking the starts !… hope it works out very well with no issues

  31. LifeExamined108 on October 3, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Would coal stove work instead?

  32. A little dirt never hurt on October 3, 2021 at 9:07 am
