Yesterday we had a group of students from the Center for Sustainable Development at the University of Uppsala come out to our garden for a work day. This is the third year now and an event we look forward to. We get alot of work done along with good dicussions on ecological gardening and sustainability.

Harvesting potatoes

Job rotation – a new crew digging potatoes.

Working with the compost piles

More manure on this years pile

Turning last years pile to airate it.

Digging the well pond

The dirt goes on a mound that will be grass covered when the well is finished.

At the end of the day we had a dinner and discussion by the fire in the tipi – pumpkin soup, bread, hummus and pickles, mostly all made with garden or local ingredients including pumpkins harvested from the compost pile earlier.
