WEEK TWO: LADIES ENTER STAGE RIGHT

February 21, 2020

The Ladies carry some biochar to incorporate into the first vegetable beds learning how this will  give Hope Sakuma's vegetables strong healthy roots, improve soil structure and increase our soil's ability to store planet-warming CO2.

 

The first day of farmer field school wraps up sees Ladies from Makelekos, Robomp and RoGbin combine to turn the clods of rich Sanda soil in the precision beds into a fine tilth, ready for seed, utilizing Hope Sakuma's new small hoes as Project Coordinator Amabest explains how working the biochar into the soil will give the Ladies's vegetables healthy roots and enhance our soils' ability to store carbon for hundreds and thousands of years.

 

Day two and although it's now too late to plant fresh onion seed the Ladies are shown how to prepare half an onion bed making neat ridges for the seed.
