Background and Personal History:

Lindsey Schiller is an avid gardener and greenhouse designer. In 2011, she co-founded Ceres Greenhouse Solutions, which researches, designs and builds energy-efficient year-round greenhouses. Lindsey studied greenhouse design at the University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC) before delving into passive solar greenhouse design. Lindsey has designed, toured and helped build hundreds of energy-efficient greenhouses spanning small residential structures to acre-size commercial facilities.

She is also the author, along with Marc Plinke, of The Year-Round Solar Greenhouse: How to Design and Build a Net-Zero Energy Greenhouse. She believes the key to a green thumb is knowledge, and her goal is to make it easier backyard gardners, schools, and small-scale farmers to grow their own food, sustainably and year-round.
