Groundbreaking!

Our groundbreaking event resulted in the amazing construction of a recycled palate bench,


and making our first Huglekultur bed.  Hugulkultur is a permaculture technique where the use of logs (which we pulled from the back of the lot) as a base layer for the bed acts as a sponge, retaining moisture as it turns into dirt.  These logs are "pre-dirt" and will add organic matter and beneficial micro-organisms, fungi and bacteria,  to the soil as they decompose.  Check out this link for more info on hugulkulture: http://www.richsoil.com/hugelkultur/

Man those kids really worked.  Moving new soil into place to make our lovely planting ground.
