Workshop weekend – Soil, pasture & rocket stove – May 2017
One weekend dedicated to:
- Soil and pasture improvement
- Building a rocket stove fire bath
- Making wood fire pizzas
That weekend we sowed seeds for the pasture, surveyed to implement Yeoman's design to aerate the soil and improve water infiltration. These techniques will increase life in the soil and therefore sequester carbon from the air.
We also worked on building a cob rocket stove for the fire bath so we can keep warm and blissful.
At night we made pizzas, ate them by the fire and camped under the autumn skies.
