Hi, to all solaroof.org members:
My name is Tuisco Petzoldt. I live and work in Holland and my life longtime friend and business partner Steve Silos lives and works in Suriname fulltime on our Agro Best greenhouse project. We are building a controlled environment greenhouse.
In our endeavors to improve horticulture practices in the Humid Tropics we found that information is scarce when it comes to production in controlled environment conditions.
Steve Silos and I are extremely grateful to Maureen Silos maureensilos(at)sr.net, Director of Caribbean Institute, who is doing a lot of wonderful transformative work with farmers towards biological horticulture and supply chain management. She introduced us to Steve Troy (steve(at)sustainablevillage.com) who has become a dear friend. Mr. Troy immediately upon contact took note of our challenges and soon afterwards forwarded your soloroof.org site stating “I thought you'd be interested in this site.” And sure enough, it was the “EUREKA” site for our hot roof problem.
So here we are, feeling right at home among people with the common interest of finding solutions for the realization of “a very different world than the one we see around us” as Richard mentions in his own vision so eloquently on his welcome solaroof.org page.
Anyone who would like to join up with our team please say hello below:
