The continued hot and dry weather in our part of the country is driving us all a little to distraction... and the cows are are very tired of eating old dry grass (with a few green tips thrown in). So I have been feeding them dried Jerusalem artichokes from our plentiful harvest last year and they have been chewing on those sweets with delight - look at this content face of Beauty!
And one of our chickens has hatched a new clutch of beautiful little fluff-balls
Over the last few weeks, Saturdays have become the 'building' days. Some strong young neighbors come and help to drive the construction development further at Waaipoort. We have been erecting a 7m - diameter geodesic dome (with a nice retaining wall from earth bags behind) and also continued the excavation of the Walipini and yesterday we have started with the earth bag retaining walls there as well.
Thomas Linders, Michèle Schiess and Meisha Mulla run Rosendal Permaculture Centre on Waaipoort Farm with the assistance of Honest Moyo and many volunteers from all over the world
