They Did It! Cistern is excavated.

Amazing but they did it!  Pierce, Maria and Thomas, along with a slew of volunteers, excavated a 22' X 5' X 7' old water cistern, hauling away some 20 tons of soil and debris. We will soon have a 5,550 gallon water harvesting system.

Yes, even Scrapper helped....

Thank you Maria and Thomas!  Our first two wwoofers this year were extraordinary.  Maria went off to Nevada for a forestry job and Thomas headed to a Zen monastery in the Bay area.  We'll miss you and hope to see you in the fall.
