Staking the Site
Despite the drizzle, all of us were in good spirits today, as we staked out the footprint of the site, and tested the soil. Here are some photos of our merry crew: Deston (permaculture designer extraordinaire, Shahreyar (co-conspirator/artist), Shannon (environmental studies grad student at Evergreen State & soil remediator)and Dana (gardener and volunteer). We discovered that the soil is mostly sand fill, under which is thick gravel. We have to find out if we can get some equipment (a back hoe) and two truckloads of clay (for the brush drain) for the 22nd of March. Lots to do.
