After graduating from St. Clair College in Architectural Technologies in 81, I moved to Calgary where I worked in the architectural profession for 13 years. In 1994 our family moved to Invermere so that we could raise our children in a smaller more sustainable community. I have been designing and building energy efficient homes for 18 years and lately have been researching ways to use passive solar heating designs that would work in our sun challenged winters of interior BC. In 2005 I discovered Peak Oil and that revelation spurred me on to do some intensive research into passive solar designs which lead to the discovery of the Annualized Geo-Solar concept. After incorporating the AGS design in my own home I was pursued by the local Center for Sustainable Living to investigate how the AGS concept could be used in a community greenhouse and the rest is history.
