This is featured on Canadian Yahoo today, hardly 'news', but good to see that a home brew collector and plant root heating system is being featured.[smile]

Thanks for the link. Heating outdoor soil with a hydronic collector is a neat idea.

One typo by the reporter "Previously a radial floor heating system installer"[wink]


Edit to correct myself, this was about outdoor garden plots.

SolarInterested,True [smile], but at least the reporter tried! ;-)   We should reach out and  invite Chris Bartsch to join the forum, he might enjoy being amongst like minded folk..

Good idea. No contact information in the article but maybe someone can find him on one of the social media sites.

The CBC piece is much the same but has a few more pictures.
