The Winter Solstice – The Longest Night.

From a bit of design, we will be getting Chickens, moving one of the bee hives to the property, rebuild the grow house to keep up with the varied projects as well as my own site; the addition of another 8 bioponics beds will allow us to produce food for up to 20 people on this small site.
This brings with it a new excitement. We will continue to document and show the what, how and when for a rental space to add to the possibilities.
