To Teach or to Feed - That is the Question
Nearing the end of my third week here at Ecology Action. I've harvested rye, potatoes, berries, amended a 100ft2 raised bed and double-dug two beds here in the garden. Beds are double-dug because loose soil enables plant roots to penetrate soil easily and absorb available nutrients. Above is a picture of the garden called 'the circle'. I planted the bed to the left of the bush in the circle.
Below is a picture of Lamine harvesting edible flowers at the Stanford Inn - on a field trip we took near the Mendocino Coast. Lamine is from Senegal. He plans to start a Grow Biointensive farming movement to help feed people near his home in West Africa.
