Compass Green is gearing up for an awesome spring tour in Northern California. We’ll be going to 15 schools in the Sacramento and San Francisco Bay Areas. Our plants are growing nicely, and our quinoa is knee high, and we are working on our fuel system so that we can get to all the schools in an environmentally friendly way!
As the state of California suffers from the worst drought in its history, We feel very glad that our Biointensive garden has so much humus in the soil, and that the close plant spacing is holding the moisture in. Hopefully this drought will make conventional farmers aware that that style of farming is not going to make it, and if they want to stay in business (and if we want to keep eating) they’ll have to look to something more sustainable that can handle this changing climate.
Our hearts go out to all the communities that are already suffering from this drought. To all those in the rest of the country, don’t go out without your wooly scarves!
