Yesterday the weather was absolutely gorgeous! We had planned a work day at the church and the focus was the grounds and the garden. I was afraid not many volunteers would show up. It was a perfect day to goof off! It has been so long since we had good weather.
We did end up having a great turn out. We cleared trash, down branches and weeds and also planted more greens, okra and squash. We also planted several landscape plants that a friend had passed along. The new minister was there for a short while before he and his team departed for Ethiopia. I met some members of his leadership team and he had me explain aquaponics to them. They all seemed jazzed and ready to make it happen.
Good things are happening. It's about to bust lose in the '05! We are going City Farm scale and everyone will eat like kings!
