Like Clay

Happy New Year!! We've started this year off with building garden beds.The past two days we've had a team of folks from Indiana University join us in digging path ways and building garden beds on site. Presently our soil is mostly clay. With the goal of bringing our existing soil to the appropriate texture for growing food our next steps will include bringing in organic matter as an amendment, adding it to the beds we built, and tilling it in. We'll be growing greens in no time!
