I was thinking over the last couple of days about types of "rotational grazing"
and how maybe using a festival could help start a farm
Can't afford to buy animals?
charge humans to come and do the animals work for you
now your planning would be different from this Rainbow Serpent or the Burning Man Festivals
but the goal is the same as rotational grazing but is called "rotational festivaling"
get loads of spoiled hay, wood chips and sawdust, etc., and spread them around
so rather than stirring up dust , like at the Rainbow Serpent or Burning Man,
the organic materials get mixed into the ground
and afterward mixed with "compost"
(all compostable waste and humanure held for a year.)
once this years festival is over, the ground is covered with last year's compost and planted with some ground cover
next year, move the festival to an adjacent spot that needs it
That's actually a really fun and cool idea! I love this kind of oddball thinking. It generally leads to brilliant ideas and applications.
I can see this working, even without a full on festival. Even just small gatherings, work bees, and using different areas to do outside work - i.e. building and putting things together, composting, etc.
Hhhmmm, more things to contemplate over winter . . .
