Thanks for checking out our work in progress!

We know that we have a lot of work to do, but we've also come a long way! With your help, we can get a lot more done, a lot faster!

    This is what we started with. Everything is overgrown and there is a lot of work ahead of us.

    We had a lot of clean-up, but we made it fun. Kids are always welcome to help out as well!

    There were lots of dead trees on the property. We are using the cut-up trees to build our hugel-beds.
  4. Fun times!
    Fun times!
    After the mighty wind storm we found our half build shed upside down and moved quite a bit. Being flexible is part of the permaculture mindset and we decided that that is a good location for a goat shelter and will be using our slightly bent shed for their shelter. We will be reinforcing it with wood and making it fun!

    This is the woods area that will become our mushroom forest and will have cobb houses throughout.
  8. Building soil
    Building soil
    In order to grow the best produce, we have to build the soil. We spent the first 2 years doing that. This is our first year with our market garden beds.
