Cooling a house takes a lot of energy and can be a large expense for many living in the tropics and subtropic regions.

In this video, we visit St Michael’s Permaculture Country Club, home of Justin Dolan in Puntarenas, Costa Rica.

Justin describes how he’s using living roofs and vines to act as a regenerative natural cooling system.

We had a mic failure, but I didn’t want to let the moment go to waste. I hope the subtitles serve you well and the info is inspiring to you!

If you enjoyed this peek into Justin’s world, be sure to check out the full-length podcast episode right here.
