Our organic agriculture program got a boost
from the help of a good portion of the October Workshop.

Before work begins, the crew cooks bacon on a small fire as Adam
(Arcosanti Organics Manager)
teaches the group how to season an iron skillet.

October Workshopper Carrie is
designated the master of removing Bermuda grass –
you need to dig down extremely deep to remove the roots

Workshopper Gaby spreads
Clover seed around the Paulownnia
trees to add a source of nitrogen to the soil and
establish a root system to prevent a reoccurrence of Bermuda grass.

Adam checks in with one of the several chickens that live in Camp.
