Grading begins

Various reclaimed materials were used for ecological and budgetary considerations, as well as the inherent beneficial qualities they offered.
Piles of leaves, arborist wood chips and logs


A lot has changed on the site, with a lot more planned as well. The water catchment and runoff management has been built
In progress, with lots of rain

 The walking paths are mulched for now and ready to use, with more permanent surfacing planned for the future.

The raised beds (with log cores) for annual crops have been built and a modest fall planting was done. Also, various squash and melon vines took advantage of the sunny space in the young mixed orchard this summer.


Volunteers came out to put in hundreds of native prairie plants donated through People for Pollinators at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge.
