            "This is the story of the building of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand. The story begins with the purchase of the land by Bishop Selwyn in 1842. Bishop Cowie was thwarted in his efforts to begin building on that land and St Mary's was built opposite and be...came the cathedral of the diocese for nearly 100 years. In 1957 the foundation stone of Holy Trinity was laid owing largely to the generous bequest of Miss Horton. The story of Holy Trinity and the story of St Mary's are intertwined. In 1982 St Mary's was brought across the road to be an integral part of Holy Trinity. In the mid 1990s the nave was completed. Both the nave design and the relocation of St Mary's were the inspired insights of Professor Dick Toy. Controversy has been part of the process. Frank Wright tells the story with the emphasis on the people involved. It is a moving account of a great project which gives the Anglican church in Auckland a centre of unity and belonging, and which provides a witness to the Christian Gospel and its relevance"--Publisher information.

            With a revolutionary new Climate Battery design for near-net-zero heating and cooling By the turn of the nineteenth century, thousands of acres of glass houses surrounded large American cities, becoming a commonplace symbol of the market garden and nursery trades. But the possibi...lities of the indoor garden to transform our homes and our lives remain largely unrealized. In this groundbreaking book, Jerome Osentowski, one of North America s most accomplished permaculture designers, presents a wholly new approach to a very old horticultural subject. In The Forest Garden Greenhouse, he shows how bringing the forest garden indoors is not only possible, but doable on unlikely terrain and in cold climates, using near-net-zero technology. Different from other books on greenhouse design and management, this book advocates for an indoor agriculture using permaculture design concepts integration, multi-functions, perennials, and polycultures that take season extension into new and important territory. Osentowski, director and founder of Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute (CRMPI), farms at 7,200 feet on a steep, rocky hillside in Colorado, incorporating deep, holistic permaculture design with practical common sense. It is at this site, high on a mountaintop, where Osentowski (along with architect and design partner Michael Thompson) has been designing and building revolutionary greenhouses that utilize passive and active solar technology via what they call the climate battery a subterranean air-circulation system that takes the hot, moist, ambient air from the greenhouse during the day, stores it in the soil, and discharges it at night that can offer tropical and Mediterranean climates at similarly high altitudes and in cold climates (and everywhere else). Osentowski s greenhouse designs, which can range from the backyard homesteader to commercial greenhouses, are completely ecological and use a simple design that traps hot and cold air and regulates it for best poss
