AUGUST 8th - Tomorrow is the big day - the big tractor and plow are coming in to break up the ground! Fortunately, you only have to plow deeply like this the first time you break ground in a sustainable farming operation. But we really will save a lot of labor and time using a tractor versus a small or even large, tiller. In subsequent years, we'll use very little in the way of mechanical equipment. By doing this, we will help keep the topsoil in place and the life of the soil that lives close to the surface.
I'm very excited to get going and if you'd like to come watch, you're more than welcome. We'll probably not get started too early, our friend is coming in from East Texas to do the work.
Our friend Jenice at NeighborsGo.com will also be chronicaling the event as well as the progress of this urban farm. Watch for video updates to come at http://www.neighborsgo.com/edensgardener.
We still have plenty of shares open. I want to welcome the first 5 members though and I look forward to meeting all of you in person!
