Yesterday’s Bed Building Bonanza was an amazing experience for the Flagstaff EcoRanch and we made so much progress on Hermosa Vida’s raised beds. Thanks to all of you who showed up and donated your hard work and sweat. The plants will appreciate it, future classes that visit will appreciate it (probably because they wouldn’t have had to build them…hahaha), and the families that will be receiving the fruits and veggies of your labor will appreciate it. Thanks to Hermosa Vida, Killip for their bus to shuttle families out, SNAIL and Dr. Pollak for the use of their tools, Local Alternative for the delicious veggie burger donation made with EcoRanch kale, everyone who contributed to the potluck, Roots Composting for a great composting workshop and the donation of a yard of exceptional compost, Flagstaff Foodlink and their starts program, ASU Barret Sustainability Club, NAU classes and students, NAU Student Philanthropy Council, the Master Gardener’s program and volunteers, neighbors, community members, and WWOOFers; all for helping get an incredible amount of digging and heavy lifting done. We finished two beds (25′ and 54′) and are almost finished with the last three (48′, 54′ and 60′). We’ll be posting photos in the next few days after everyone sends them our way, but we wanted to fill you in on the progress we made and say thanks to all those who made this possible. There is a really strong community of people in Flagstaff who see the importance of sharing knowledge, creating a community together, strengthening that community for for the betterment of everyone in Flagstaff, and recreating our local food networks.
Support our mission, stay at the EcoRanch. Funds generated support educational and community outreach progams.
