Psssst: The world seemed so hard and uncertain this week, but somehow you held it together and I am so proud of you. ~ Heebeejeebees
Here's What's Happening At Good Spirits Farm:
We're embarking on an erosion control project with the USDA Soil Conservation Agency which will fence off our ponds and streams from livestock.
We're building new garden beds using no-till methods. It's labor-intensive, but keeps soil intact. This method both reduces soil loss (a huge issue in American agriculture) and keeps the carbon that's sequestered in soil from being released.
It's tree and berry bush planting season! Raspberry canes, currant bushes, and a few new fruit trees are joining our farm. These plants will feed birds, pollinators, and us! We love the optimism of planting trees: Someone someday will enjoy the literal fruits of our labor. God willing, it will be us!
Happy Weekending From The Chickens of Good Spirits Farm!
