Sorry for the delay in getting this posted (it's been that kind of fall).
I finally have the time to get these photos posted from our last event. We went out to Soggy Sox Farm (east of Houston) to help transplant some plants into the newly remodeled landscape. Elemental Ecosystems (Zach Weiss & Crew) had recently done some pretty major earth works on this project and installed 2 ponds, some hugels and a chinampa. We went out to help transplant some plants as well as just to learn how the design came together and understand the context. The owner (Ben Perdou) is very engaging and has a great plan for this property. We put lots of Texas native aquatic plants into the pond edge to try to help with water purification as well as securing / stabilizing the pond edge, planted comfrey everywhere, and transplanted a few small olive trees. It was very educational to see how the implementation of the design came into being, and we learned a lot about digging in pure gumbo clay . A great time was had by all and this was a truly inspiring project to be a part of.
