Check out this barrelponics project out of Kenya called Faith And Sustainable Technology F.A.S.T. with all sorts of great projects and sustainable appropriate designs working toward breaking the cycles of poverty.
The fausnauchts turned out really nice tonight, and lent begins now in less than an hour. We are going to start some of our seeds in the greenhouse tomorrow, starting with the earliest brassicas and moving onward. I like it when Easter is early like it is this year, and the 40 days marked by a moon. I learned from one of my favorite Nuns around the neighborhood all about fasting and kneeling on the rice and reconciliation, catechumenate, and passion Via de la Rosa. Oh the purple !!! It's coming...
Springtime in the greenhouse is just never the same way twice. Different every year, like the changing days of Easter being pulled by the moon. =)
It will be a luxury to have fish emulsions as being produced regularly at the greenhouse. I like the idea of growing tilapia fish so much, just because it's from the Sea of Galilee, I have even heard it called St. Peter's Fish and his feastday should have a fish fry June 29
Im really excited about so many projects that we have going in this spring. Drip line irrigation, seedlings, chicken coop, rainbarrel production, fruit tree orchard, farmer's market, the convent, rain garden natives, naturally built shed, and the aquaponic/worm composting/micro-green systems! <3
