Part 2 of our 3 part biogas series. If you haven't read part 1 we suggest to read part one first and then come back here. 

Biogas Part 1 - the Basics

In 2017 I wrote an article for Elonkehä about Biogas. The article was first written in English and then translated by Lumia into Finnish. Find this article devided into 3 parts here at Beyondbuckthorns.

Our First Year with Photovoltaics

Last year in August we got our 4.6 KWP photovoltaik on-grid system up an running. Time for some thoughts.

One Year in Finland

23rd of May 2017 came and went. Why is that an important date anyway? Well, it's the one-year anniversary of our life in Finland. On the 23rd of May 2016 my Mum picked us up from the Tampere airport and brought us back to the house, which was completely jam-packed with moving boxes.

We Built Our Own Biogas System

After the successful Biogas workshop at the Parainen permaculture we scheduled another Biogas workshop. This time at our own premises: the Beyond Buckhtorns Permaculture. We had plans to build this DIY Biogas system since we planed our move to Finland.

Biogas Workshop at the Parainen Permaculture

On the weekend of the 28th of April Lumia and I drove down to the Parainen Permaculture, better known as Päivärinteen permakulttuuritila. I was invited by Lotta, who is the owner of the permaculture farm, to run a biogas workshop.

Installation of Our PV System - Picture Journal

Another throwback Thursday post!

As our photovoltaic system is back up and producing effectively after a Finnish winter break, I thought let's take a little picture journey back to July 2016 when the PV system was installed!
