building soil and fall garden at shamballa

 

The last weeks we’d been working on building our soil, adding compost and organic material, building new beds for spring planting and building few hot compost piles.

” Good composting, like good cooking, is anchored in an unabashed love of your ingredients, each and every one, and in a great, raring appreciation of change and inter being. Making compost is an art, the fine art of arranging garbage”  Wendy Johnson”
