Tom Watson, Pyramid of Gaia and Irrigation Lines

Tomorrow, Thursday March 29 at 9:00am, permaculture teacher Tom Watson will be visiting Gaia Gardens to talk to us about erosion control, swells and other age-old water catchment techniques.

Our Earth Moving champion Will Atkinson was back on Monday to create trenches for our irrigation water lines and remove more rocks from the fence line and lower field.

A parking area was created for our interns and wwoofers 

as well as an area for a fire pit and dance floor.

The fruits that we salvaged a few weeks ago and planted last week are....blooming!

Kaylyn, one of our interns, demonstrating the proper bib-stretching technique...

Another demonstration by Tiel, our other hard working intern...

350 feet of 3/4" PVC water line were buried around the lower field, servicing 4 spigot locations for irrigation purpose.  A power line was also installed in the trench to power our compost tea operation and...sound system when we get one...

An ant hill was turned into a pyramid by master builder Kaylyn near the camping area.

Our regular FARM DAYS for volunteers are held every Thursday and Sunday from 1:00-4:00pm (winter schedule)
