Soil Building Initiative Launched!

These weeks are busy, as the month of October is a squash farmer’s dream as all minds turn to pumpkin.  So what better way to celebrate the season than with a two fold community building action.  This past week, I got the Squash and Awe Soil Building Initiative launched.  Building Soil-Building Community.  I have asked local businesses to “sign on” to the program by donating pure, green or brown compostable waste to help build my farm’s soil.  In turn, I teach a pumpkin program at their school of choice.  So far so good…40 gallons of green waste.  18 lbs of coffee grounds, and three trunk loads of cardboard to use in my sheet mulching.  30 preschoolers served, and 5 classes at 3 schools in the weeks ahead.                                               OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
