About: Richard Boettner

Everyone wants to know about me. How about the project instead. The Greenhouse Project is an idea I had after I've seen food prices go up due to fuel prices but when fuel prices came down food prices stayed the same. Also, a store I use to frequent raised prices on everything but their own brand name items, essentially ripping off customers. Far too often people can't afford healthy organic food resorting to what they can afford which is far less nutritious. Far too much food is imported from south of the border, or farther away and not enough grown locally to reduce food miles or pollution. So, I came up with the idea as way to grow organic food year-round in a greenhouse needing no fossil fuels.
