WORKSHOP WEEKEND - SOIL, PASTURE & ROCKET STOVE - MAY 26th-28th 2017

SOIL AND PASTURE IMPROVEMENT
ROCKET STOVE FIRE BATH BUILDING
PIZZA MAKING

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.
