Sustainability Workshop A Success And Building A Cook Shack

The first in our series of sustainability workshops took place yesterday, and despite strong thunderstorms that caused us to start a little late it was a great success. We built a raised lasagna garden bed on a section of ground where the limited amount of soil was compacted, and talked about a few related skills to help the plants grow. This morning I’ll plant potatoes in the new bed and make a second one next to it. The people who came brought their kids, and they all had a great time.

This week I’ll be taking apart the wooden platform our wall tent has lived on for several years and we’ll be recycling the wood into a small cook shack. I’ve thought about upgrading our outdoor kitchen for a while now, and this week it will become a reality. I picked up a wood cookstove and want to use it as our main camp kitchen appliance, but have wanted a roof over it to keep it dry and avoid rust. We’ll still have the propane stove, but this will be a step toward minimizing our propane use and moving toward using wood for all our cooking.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
