First Walkthrough of the Property

Some twenty adults and four children showed up for our first walk-through of the property.  Gardeners, school teachers, biodynamic gardeners, beekeepers, a water rights specialist and a botanist were amongst our visitors.

Jay Tallmon, the property owner, sharing the history of the land which was part of a 19-acre fruit orchard.

After the walk-through, Will Atkinson (left), his daughter Michelle and Juaquin Lawrence Hershman (center), a biodynamic farmer and master horticulturist (, discussed plans for the soil preparation in all the areas that will be cultivated.  Will offered the use of his earth-moving equipment to help prepare the soil.

Our community work gatherings will begin this week on a regular winter schedule of Thursdays and Sundays from 1:00-4:00pm.  
(if you plan to attend, please bring gloves and sturdy boots as we will begin with moving a lot of debris and rocks).
