Exploring Nebraska

Greenhouse in the Snow

Russ Finch lives in Northwestern Nebraska in the town of Alliance. He designed and built a greenhouse that runs only on a small fan circulating geothermal heat. Using energy costs of about one dollar per day, Russ produces hundreds of pounds of citrus fruit each year to sell at local farmer’s markets.
