Crop Circles

Today, a beautiful crop circle appeared on the lower field.  Our first beds were created.  They will be top-dressed with one year-old horse/steer manure on Sunday. We are envisioning a shrine in the center of the garden.  All are invited to collaborate.

A 4' bed is being created along our 300 foot fence.  Bed will first be planted with beans, peas and flowering vines, then with cucumbers and tomatoes.  We hope to have the whole fence covered with flowers and vegetables by this summer.

The compost pile is growing rapidly thanks to a weekly food drop from the Food Depot and Ohori's Coffee.  A "mattress" for a second pile has already been created.  First pile should be retired within a month.  Please feel free to bring your compost when you visit the farm.

A temporary kitchen and lounge area is being created to accommodate our woofers and interns

Money Needed to Purchase Irrigation
