Passive Solar Greenhouse Design Course – ARAS ( Ardrossan)

ARAS is pleased to sponsor this course and offer it free of charge to the community.
The course teaches you to design cutting-edge passive solar greenhouses at any scale or level of complexity. By the end of the course:
*Individuals will be able to pass their design on to professional builders and contractors.
*Nonprofits will be empowered to design a life-changing project for their community and solicit bids for the build.
We will begin 1 week behind the live start date, projecting a replay of the class for 10 Wednesdays in a row from March 27 to May 29.
Flexible drop in – come for all, some dates, or partial evenings. Be part of ARAS’ community greenhouse plans, or learn for your own project.
