Treehugger has a great feature on building a geodesic dome solar greenhouse so you can grow your own food. The slideshow is really amazing!

What do you do when you want to grow your own food, but live more than a mile above sea level in Colorado? That’s the question my dad wanted to answer when he started this project about a year ago: Living at 7,750 feet above sea level, with a summer growing season of about 80 days between killing freezes, how can you grow your own food? His answer: A geodesic dome solar greenhouse.
