DIY Underground Greenhouse: The Walipini “Warm Place” From The Bolivian Highlands


The Walipini (underground or pit greenhouse) in this pdf is designed specifically for the area of La Paz, Bolivia. However, the principles explained make it possible to build the Walipini in a wide variety of geographic and climatic conditions.

The word ‟Walipini” comes from the Aymara Indian language and means ‟place of warmth”. The Walipini utilizes Nature’s resources to provide a warm, stable, well-lit environment for year-round vegetable production. Locating the growing area 6’- 8’ underground and capturing and storing daytime solar radiation are the most important principles in building a successful Walipini.
