(video) Underground Walipini Pit Greenhouses Produce Tomatoes Year Round

An underground greenhouse makes a lot of sense in arid climate of New Mexico. I came across a super effective and simple Walipini inspired greenhouse that was home made by Mark Irwin.

Check out this video where Mark shows you what he has been doing and how he is making a small side income by selling tomatoes to the Albuquerque market year round.

I am a big proponent of lots of little side income businesses. Diversity ensures there is always something coming in.

Note that I’ve put the references Mark mentions down below the video.

Enjoy – and comment! We love to hear from you.
