Build A $300 Underground Greenhouse For Year-Round Gardening (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



(N.Morgan) While researching being prepared for lean times and shortages of food and supplies, I found this marvelous article on how to build an underground greenhouse, for year around gardening. The best part, it can all be done for $300! This set up is perfect for those who live in colder climates or who may live some place where gardens aren’t really welcome. These greenhouse are inexpensive to heat throughout the winter months. Check out the video below for more detailed instructions and information.

      Good article….tunnel gardens are also easy to construct.

    • Anonymous

      My Grandfather did this on Cape Cod (Orleans) 50 years ago.

      • N. Morgan (Investigative Reporter)

        Yes, the old ways are the best ways, most of the time.

      The Prepper info is always fun. However did you ever notice how many of them seem to live in Arizona and West Texas. If I lived in that wasteland is would be prepping every day too.

        West Texas is no waste land. Immigrants came to west Texas during WWII, and alloted land to raise food for America, and did a good job……Now Monsanto, and other GMO has slaved these ole folks, and taken over their land…..this BS needs to stop, most of these old folks do not even know these con artist are growing this GMO foods, but you can bet the big farmers COOP/Insurance knows, They got the fat cat money in their pockets.. Always more to the story………..just sad how these folks worked hard, and then the likes like Monsanto, and other GMO’s steal their land, grow GMO crops

        You really should live in West Texas before you berate West Texas. We could say the same thing about New York, or LA, too. ‘Wow, look at all those millions of fools living in a concrete jungle packed shoulder-to-shoulder with each other in a place that most assuredly cannot support a tenth of those there. If I were them, I’d plan to survive, instead of counting on the government like they do’. See? Stupidity works both ways.

        I have a well, and with water, the soil in West Texas is quite robust for growing good crops. No matter how much you water all that concrete in NY or LA, all you are going to end up with is wet concrete there. Careful not to be standing in quicksand, laughing at another – it really is quite unbecoming.

      Thanks! Good info and I love the price!

      Actually, while this concept sounds great, mathematically it does not work for most regions that are excessively cold. You would have to calculate the angle of the roof for your location. The picture shows 39-degrees relative to the surface, but that would only work where your latitude is 11 N (someone standing in Honduras or Panama would have this latitude – not in the North American area).

      There is an equation you must use to find your solar perpendicular point for Solstice. I will explain it, then give you the equation, and you can test it by using the Artic Circle as the proof.

      90-degrees is the point straight overhead, known as ‘Zenith’. To correct a plane so that the sun achieves Zenith perpendicular to a plane, you have to know what angle you are first positioned at, then what angle the sun is at. If you don’t know your Latitude (your position), that’s ok, you can either Google it, or at 2 times of year, measure it directly. Let’s google ‘Los Angeles Latitude’. It is 34-degrees North. Ok, now knowing the earth’s ’tilt’ is 23.5 degrees, and that it swings a total of 47 degrees (+23.5 degrees to -23.5 degrees) during the year, then we know that our position is affected by this amount of tilt. That said, it means that in the Summer, the highest above you that the sun can rise (the closest it can approach Zenith), is 90-(34-23.5)=79.5 degrees. In the Winter, when the sun is ‘low’ in the sky, the sun is south of the Equator, so then you calculate low point by compounding latitude and ’tilt’. In LA, the lowest the sun will ever reach at midday is 90-(34+23.5)=32.5 degrees in the sky. The difference should always work out to be 47-degrees, Summer vs Winter.

      Now, since you want to build a greenhouse with a perpendicular roof to the sun’s Zenith on Winter Solstice, you would want to be perpendicular to a sun sitting at 32.5 degrees. That’s 90-32.5 = 57.5 degrees. That is a roof which runs more vertical than horizontal “”. As you go further north, that slope further increases. At the edge of the Artic Circle, it would be a vertical wall facing South (don’t forget to face your roof towards true South!).

      Yes, this is all accurate – test it with any point on the Artic Circle (66.56 N Lat.). You will see, the equations I have given are correct (I did round, for planet tilt). Now, if you are below 45-degrees N. Latitude (the U.S.), you in theory could take advantage of this equation and the greenhouse roof-slope idea to have a nice home or greenhouse. The concept is valid – as long as you use the proper math to calculate it first.

      Who could be hired to dig a hole that big and deep for $300?

      And $300 doesn’t take into account the plastic for the roof as well as the wood supports and other needs.

      The only way it would work that I can see with a December thru March Winter sun is to be totally enclosed and using only artificial lighting, but then one needs to spend $$ on the lighting and electricity, and figure out how to cove the top which could get expensive.

      It doesn’t seem practical for most people.

        go rent a mini-excavator for about $100-150 a day. Should only take a couple hours to dig that.
