The Caldera, located on top of the great volcano.
Up the newly built rock-ity road, passed the tent launching pads, near raspberry rock, you will find a majestic look out and space for many permaculture artisano ideas to come to life!
We have been planting many grasses and clovers and cover crops of the kind. And we have recently added sunchokes!
Check out the progress and come add to the project!

Thanks Sara! So happy planting is happening up there!

For anyone who might be as literal, or as gullible as I am, we're being cheeky calling this the caldera. It's a depression in the peak of what we call the hollowed out volcano with good submarine access, which is the highest point (about a 500-ft rise from the road) on our rocky, hilly base camp property. Because, as Paul's says:

paul wheaton wrote:Of course, when your mission is world domination you need a hollowed out volcano with good submarine access. That's just standard operating procedure.



And here's a caldera view in May of 2015 (from a couple of pics) before all the recent seeding and planting (love me some arrowleaf balsamroot!):
