The planting of the FOOD FOREST begins- Saturday, Feb.1st 9am-4pm

First off, I want to thank Barry, Brett, Don, Allen, Mike, Glen, Evan, Calvin, Ray, Nolan, Jeff, the Boyscouts, Angelica, Matthew, Kirby, Taelor and Matthew for coming out last Saturday and hauling 22 cubic yards of soil from the city parking lot to the garden.  Thank you GEOGROWERS!

NO SMALL FEAT for so few.  For those that couldn't make it, you missed an incredible core workout!

Paul Galvan and his camera crew got WAY too many shots of us hauling dirt, but this Saturday is gonna be different.  This Saturday, we're gonna PLANT!  The video crew will be back, so we need the ENTIRE COMMUNITY to come out and represent our fair city.  We'll be working from 9am to 4pm, so even if you only have an hour or two, come by and support this amazing project.

Kirby Fry and his permaculture team will be teaching us about the wonderful world of Dynamic Accumulators, Pollinators, Farmer's Trees, Cover Crops and Guilds.

Sorry, no photos of the beds and last weeks work day, (too busy hauling dirt!), but I'll add a little video from Geoff Lawton, a founder of the Permaculture movement.  This inspired me to want to build a Food Forest.

  2. Aw, this was a very good post. Finding the time and actual effort to create a good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and don't seem to get nearly anything done.
