Abstract

We designed and constructed a 275-­gallon anaerobic digester capable of producing and collecting methane rich biogas for a small urban farm, Nuestro Huerto. Our design focused on safety, cost, efficiency, and output. Our goal was to collect enough biogas to heat a small greenhouse and extend the growing season for urban farmers.
