Yesterday I posted pics of an herb spiral I creatted and today I wanted to post a horse trough ( how's it spelled?) Bed I'm working on. I'm have three projects I'm working on this summer as an intern. The lacal youth detention center, department of corrections, and a local church. I going to be teaching youtth about basic gardening skill all the while I want to teach as much permiculture as I know. For tthe record I think our criminal justice system is fucked but if I can encourage just one or two youth to pursue small scale permiculture practises I feel it will be a summer well spent. So with out any further blab here's a few pick of the bed I'm working on. I lied more blab real quick I have also encouraged planting more perinials maybe one day the detention center one day can have aspect of a food forest.

Layed a bit more rocks, layer of rotting wood I found on site (ask and you shall receive), layer of wheat straw with bone meal mixed in ( I didn't have a high nitrogen source but if you reapeat this bed it would be good idea to mix in blood meal or a good nitrogen source), a layer of newspaper (don't be mad Paul), and two inches of compost but we are getting another load of locally sourced compost to add four more inches.

Once again sorry on the pics not posting but heere are a few pics from the church. I had a team of 6 to 12 yr old girls waiting in line to be the next peerson to use the hammer while the othe kids played kick ball. It was nice to work with people with enthusiasm ( I need a phone with spell check). We were builing bed with salvage lumber from the site.
