May 3, 2016 - Building Hyperadobe walls in the Transition from Hydroponics to Semi-Tropical Fruit

This video shows the beginning of the process to change the greenhouse from an essentially plastic hydroponic system covering the whole area to an organic soil grown semi-tropical orchard.

The greenhouse transition to semi-tropical orchard created 25 cubic yards of extra fill which we turned into a 4' hyperadobe wall which increased the greenhouse thermal mass.

The wall complete and ready to 'mud'. The plastic mesh is covered with mud which smooths the wall and protects it from breaking down in sunlight.
