Caroling Hayrides - Cancelled
The tradition of the orchard-visiting 'wassail' refers to the ancient custom of visiting orchards and singing to the trees to promote a good harvest for the coming year. At Linvilla, we continue this tradition with holiday songs and Christmas carols sung around a roaring fire. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus, this event has been cancelled for 2020.
Our Garden Center
The garden center has garden retention tanks that can hold up to 13 thousand gallons of water. The rain water that rolls off the roof is collected in the tanks. 1 inch of rain = 10,000 gallons of water! We use the collected water to water our plants in the greenhouse. What doesn’t fit in the tank goes back into the water table. We also have a water retention pond that reduces the rate that rain water enters our local streams and rivers, preventing erosion and flooding.
Heating with our Wood Chip Burner
Our green house and garden center is heated by our friend "Chip". Chip heats the water for our radiant floor heating system. With the addition of “Chip,” our wood chip burner, we recycle waste wood into fuel to help heat our buildings. Chip burns at such a high heat that the ash and particulate matter is much less, so we have a clean, more efficient system. We accept trees and branches from tree surgeons and gather them when pruning our orchards to make our wood chips.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling System
Only a few feet below our feet the earth’s temperature stays at a fairly consistent 55 degrees. During the winter when the air is colder than 55 degrees, our system collects the Earth's natural heat through a series of pipes, called a loop, installed below the surface of the ground. Fluid circulates through the loop and carries the heat to the greenhouse. This process uses much less fuel to heat or cool the water since the temperature of the water is neither too hot nor too cold. Our gift shop is cooled in the summer months by the geothermal cooling. The 55 degrees cools the air it is then distributed through our cloth ducts that hang on our ceiling of the gift shop.
Radiant Floor Heat
Our Garden Center uses the wood chip burner to heat the concrete floors. The radiant floor heat is a very efficient form of heat. By heating the concrete floor the heat is more evenly spread out and the floor holds the heat making it more efficient and requiring less fuel to maintain the heat in the building.
Our greenhouse has solar panels on the south facing roof on the north side of the building. The electricity produced by the panels produces enough electric to run the garden center. The solar sun rays that come into the greenhouse heat the concrete floor and the building in the winter months. They also provide the necessary light for the plants. While nice and toasty during the day from all the sunlight.
Our farm market uses a solar hot water heater on the roof of the Farm Market to heat all of the water used in the bakery, farm market and building!
