Plants in the Ground at Free Farm!

This past Saturday marked the first planted bed of food at the Free Farm!  We have three adorable terraced beds of strawberries on a slope overlooking the farm.  

We started with some compost from the dump
















then dug out the side 
of the hill to create a plane, or terrace, mixing in the compost.















We used rocks from the original St. Paulus Lutheran church structure to shore up the bed

Planting seedlings in 
the new beds 


















And this is what you
 end up with.  Strawberries in the ground!
