About this title



THE OPENING OF THE FIRST BIODOME GARDEN IN OTTAWA - AUGUST 27, 2014 "On August 17, 2014 the Brewer Park Community Garden (BPCG), situated across from Brewer Arena, celebrated the grand opening of Ottawa's first Biodome Garden project. To commemorate the day, the Park hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony along with an afternoon of events, including a barbecue and tours of the Biodome and gardens. When asked about the inspiration for the Biodome Garden, Oster credited the ever-enduring spirit of his co-project leader, Guy Souliere and the pages of Patricia Watters' book The Biodome Garden Book.

"The completion of the Biodome Garden marks an historic moment for Ottawa. The project is the first structure of its kind in Eastern Canada, making it an exciting achievement that sets a high standard and precedence for future similar structures to be built in the Region. As explained by those involved in the project, "Since its inception, the Biodome Garden has appreciated informal collaboration with both Carleton University and Algonquin College. The energy systems for air movement, fluid pumping and temperature modulation of the Biodome Garden form the thesis topic of a Carleton Masters Candidate, Paula Claudino. Recognizing that both Carleton and Algonquin value community collaboration and real-world research opportunities, the Biodome Garden is hoping to attract more formal partnerships with one or both partners." It is the hope of the Brewer Park Community Garden that this innovative project will be replicated many times in several different forms across the City and Ottawa Region. Its replication could shape the beginning of a much more healthy and sustainable food culture across Ottawa." --SPACING MAGAZINE

"Even before the advent of biodomes, experimentation had already begun with domed enclosures that could sustain year-round gardens. At the forefront was Patricia Watters, author of the "The Biodome Garden Book," the premier book on passive-solar biodome greenhouse gardening. When Watters constructed her first biodome garden 30 years ago, even the most forward-thinking gardening communities hadn't conceived of a solar-powered, weed- and pesticide-free, waist-level greenhouse capable of producing its own food (in the form of aquatic animals), which could, in turn, feed organically grown vegetables using minimal water." (WHOLE LIFE TIMES MAGAZINE)

"May as well start off with the most comprehensive food production system that I have ever come across. A wonderful lady named Patricia Watters has written a book on how to construct a system that not only produces produce, but also fish, (a great protein source) in an environment that does not require sprays or the traditional heating and electrical expenses associated with green house systems. The dome itself should fit into most back yards." (GEOFF LAWTON - PERMACULTURE INNOVATOR)


About the Author:

Patricia Watters is committed to energy conservation and wholesome lifestyles. Log homes and solar greenhouses are complimentary to her philosophy of life. Her objective in creating THE BIODOME GARDEN BOOK and WAIST-LEVEL GARDENING (also on Amazon), and passing on the information so that others can benefit from her research, is an effort to help others enjoy a healthful, environmentally-friendly way of life. Ms. Watters became involved in creating an effective passive solar greenhouse system in 1982 while pursuing an interest in growing vegetables year-around that would use a minimum of water. Subsequently, she developed her Biodome Garden, which includes a 900-gallon aquaculture system for heat absorption, radiation, and humidification. Ms. Watters lives with her husband in a hand-built log house in the woods of Oregon. Their only source of water is rain water, which is collected off the roof and flows into an 8000-gallon under-ground cistern. She invites you to visit her website at to learn more about the book, and to view full-color photographs of her Biodome garden.
