Chena Hot Springs is working towards becoming a self-sustaining community, and an important part of making this vision a reality is to strive for greater independence in food production. Chena installed a small test greenhouse in 2004, which has operated year round and is heated entirely with water from their geothermal resource. They were able to maintain the standard greenhouse temperature of 78°F while outside temperatures dropped to -56°F. This 134°F temperature differential was the largest recorded for any controlled environment production facility in the U.S. Since then they have improved upon their design and diversified their production. Their center is a tourist destination that doesn’t publicly list they have work trade opportunities, but they are available if you contact them with your skills and intentions. Chena also has paid positions open for guides. They feature natural hot springs, an ice museum and tours of their geothermal energy system.
