It’s a Greenhouse: Settling some bets.
This article started as a simple photo and an explanation of a unique building under construction a few miles south on highway 84. This structure has been slowly constructed over the last couple of years and has caused interest from many folks living further south who drive by the site often. I have heard that bets have been made. Some guessed a barn for a nearby alpaca herd. Others predicted a home, a horse facility, a pot farm and others. This year the roof went on. With the roof rafters going up it became obvious to me that it had some solar application. As a long time solar technology user I recognized the southern exposure and angle of the roof. It was going to be a greenhouse or a very warm anything else!
Now, most Pagosans, and particularly those not living in town or developments, are not too nosey about the affairs of neighbors because we are an independent lot who treasure our own privacy. No one wanted to go in and ask what the heck was going on. Turns out, that is my job while doing this website. I get paid for being nosey! I went in and asked. Turns out, it is a greenhouse.
It is owned by Rebecca Curling who was not at all upset with my nose. It will be a unique system of gardening employing a system called vertical gardening, growing up a wall instead of plots on the ground. The first floor will be used for mushroom of a type used for anti ageing and as an anti oxidant. A variety of produce is planned along with a hydroponics system to include growing fish. All of the growth will be pesticide free and organic with harvest during all four seasons. It absolutely will not be for marijuana production!
We will continue to post articles on this facility as time passes.
