Suzi, I, and Betty (thank you!) worked at Green Gulch Farms Friday to lend our hands. We started off in the thick of leftover food and horse manure - what a great way to start the day!! We rediscovered that composting is truly an art. The beautiful, rich soil that is created from all these leftovers proves how amazing nature is. This was our recipe for compost cake.
Layer 1: horse manure
Layer 2: leftovers from Greens Restaurant and who know where else - YUM! (See pictures)
Layer 3: a light covering of greens
Layer 4: a spinkle of mulch
Next, we were off to the kitchen garden for a much more mellow task of harvesting the most delicious parsley and some chives. This coming week we are off to Occidental Arts and Ecology Center to participate in their garden teacher training program. Ye Haw! More on that soon...
