Greenhouse in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

My father built this greenhouse with salvaged windows and wood from abandoned crumbling barns and our forest.  He built the foundation with handmade cement and rocks from our property.  It is perfect for growing tomatoes in our maritime climate.

The filter is fully sustainable and takes only pennies to produce, which renders it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter can give a person up to 30 days of clean water, and each book can offer four years’ worth.
