Mandala Community Garden Comes to Life

Tom, Dan, and Chancy bring in the compost and mulch. Gary is behind the camera.
 Between the Spring snows we have been able do raise one of two gardens to planting readiness. 

In this half, field crop plots are on the right and center keyhole beds on the left.

Removing the sod with a gas cutter is very nice for the back and takes only minutes.

50/50 compost from RRT, 60 yards
Gary rolls sod from the center garden area in the bigger 64 foot diameter garden

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
