Composting Greenhouse, New Alchemy
Click to view full size image
Green house at New Alchemy Institute, Falmouth, Mass. USA. White bins on left hold compost and manure which partially heats the greenhouse during the winter. Note multi-layer ceiling covering. This would be about the width of a greenhouse on Mars if serviced by people. Fully automated greenhouses could be wider or narrower.
