    This family sure isn’t having any happy times by their pools side. They prefer using it for something green instead! Living in Mesa, Arizona, the family of four has converted an old swimming pool in their backyard into a greenhouse, designed and built by them! Named the Garden Pool, this greenhouse is home to all kinds of vegetables and herbs, chickens and tilapia fish too! The family started work on the pool somewhere in 2009, and have completed before the expected 2012 deadline. The Garden Pool gives them 8 fresh eggs a day, unlimited tilapia fish, organic fruit, veggies, and herbs 365 days a year! This obviously decreases their grocery bill. The family is still working on it to make it greener, incorporating a solar power system, water conservation, biofiltration methods, and loads more.

    The only set back for them is the fact that they’ll just miss those dips in the pool on a hot summers day. But they certainly don’t care for those measly pleasures anyways! Good going green family!
