I'm so very excited to have some of my greywater now going into my soil to water some newly planted grapes (muscat and wild native). I also plan to plant bananas, a few passion fruit vines and more.
I'm very happy that I was able to do this as a workshop, providing an opportunity for folks to learn and share and build community. Three of the 17 folks who came were my neighbors living within a few blocks of me! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to get to know them. And one of them will trade me his kale & lemons for eggs (love the chance to build the barter/underground economy)!
Folks worked so hard (my soil needs serious rehabing). Here's what I fed them to keep them fueled:
granola, trail mix & fresh farmers market fruit (strawberries, grapes, tangerines, tangelos, apples from Smit, Schaners, Suzie's Farms
garlicky hummus with fresh veggies (carrots, sugar snap peas, cauliflower, romanesco, broccoli, green onions, radish from Sage Mt and Suzie's Farms)
fresh squeezed lemonade
and iced tea...
Orange Ginger Iced Tea
1 oz black tea (I used Darjeeling)
1/2 oz dried orange peel
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
Bring a gallon of filtered or spring water to a boil. Add tea, orange peel and ginger and steep for 5 minutes. Strain the tea and allow to cool. Serve over ice, sweeten as desired or mix with lemonade.
