dc.description.abstract This paper presents a design for a greenhouse equipped to produce vegetables in isolated Arctic settlement, in particular, Arviat, Nunavut. The main components in this design are wind turbines as an energy source, passive heating system as a heat source and an irrigation system utilizing groundwater to provide required moisture. The greenhouse is structured to minimize wind stresses and contains a water-wall designed to absorb and store solar energy emitted from sunlight. This facility will operate for nine months of the year. The primary focus is on the production of tomatoes to introduce to the community of Arviat. In order to supply the needed amount of produce, there will be a total of six greenhouses. en
