Natural Home Cooling (Justin Dolan: St Michael’s Permaculture Country Club)

Dec 11, 2020 | 0 comments

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.
