Hey, everyone! I'm a member of the Student Greenhouse Project at Michigan State University. I just wanted to spread the word about our project!

The Student Greenhouse project is a nonprofit corporation of college students trying to build a geodesic biodome on the campus of Michigan State University. The proposed design of the Biodome has some really amazing features like transparent solar panels that line the outside of the dome, a rainwater catchment system, a gray water digester, and will hold a vast tropical garden inside!

The organization's overarching goal is to inspire similar sustainable and nature-focused biodome structures on college campuses across the globe. Not only would this be an amazing accomplishment for a group of college students, but further would be proof of the tangible and lasting improvements that students can leave at their respective college campuses with enough dedication.

We’ve recently launched a Kickstarter in order to fund a full engineering analysis which is a big step in the process of getting this built very soon. We plan on having the dome constructed and ready for use by the public by the year 2022! You can find a lot more detailed information about our project on the Kickstarter page.

Here is our website: https://www.sgpbiodome.com

Thanks for taking the time to read this!!

The startup I work for is looking for interns to help create a Permaculture campus this summer.

Great opportunity for any young permaculturists in the north east!

Hey - i think I’ve caught the permie bug. I’m trying to make a plan to get started now. I have a spot next to my house I’m planning to start a food forest on. But I also have about 7 acres of existing woodlot(a few pines, but mainly white oak, red oak, sweetgum and a few cedar trees-good amount of underbrush...collects water in a rain).

How feasible is it to install a food forest in an existing forest? Say I trim out some underbrush - would this work? Or would the canopy crowd out the smaller stuff?

Thanks so much for any advice to get started! Oh- I’m in Eastern Texas USA zone 7a-7b.
