Buckminster Fuller gave us great inventions. The geodesic dome may be the greatest for it’s simplicity and utility.
In the years ahead, we will use many more of his ideas and put them to good use.

In Colorado it’s cold for much of the year, but inside this cozy dome greenhouse, the plants are growing happily. Take a grand tour with Buckhorn Gardens manager and permaculturist Breigh Peterson: the greenhouse structure with its interplay of light and water, warmth and air; curving raised beds of vegetables and flowers; fish tanks moderating the temperature; vertical trellises and shelves to use vertical space. Outdoors, a huge garden of row crops and a young orchard are complemented by free-roaming chickens and ducks.
