Last Saturday, our Dandelion Ranchers gathered at Thure and Maria's for our second brainstorming event. The company was delicious and the food charming...
- Creating money-making ventures for teenagers such as selling worm castings, compost, flowers (dafodils, tulips) and growing shitake mushrooms. A formal invitation to the kids will be crafted to pass around to parents (Giselle, Joan)
- Dealing with the volume of compost we are currently getting from 1 restaurant and 3 coffee shops. Dan may ask his neighbor for permission to use the back of their property. We are running out of space and may need to relocate our compost area to make room for the building of a shed and outdoor kitchen. (Dan, Poki, Juaquin)
- Renting a ditch witch to bring water and power to back of property (Dan, Gary, Poki)
- Inquiring with plumber and electrician about code/permit/cost (Dan, Poki)
- Pricing material for plumbing and electrical supplies (Poki)
- Gathering recycled building material for our structures (2X4, 2X6, 2X8, plywood, OSB siding, bricks, river rocks, metal roofing, etc.) Keep your ears and eyes open for free material (contact Poki)
- Creating a perennial garden along the top fence/above the swing, softening slope with a rock wall. Shrine and bench could be located in that area
- Finishing arroyo fence and chicken coop fence (Gary, Poki, Dan)
- Creating the bicycle shed in the front of the property
- Building a gazebo and fire pit in the play area, leaving plenty of room for Amelie to ride her bike...
