This is the final (for real this time!) trench digging day of 2012 for a cob garden wall that will be completed in 2013. We are building a rubble drainage trench for the foundation. Come see where theory meets practical reality! We'll finish digging, then do a water test to make sure it actually drains (then we'll dig some more if it doesn't - but a previous test indicates no problems). Come for as long or short as you like. Bring digging tools and gloves if you have them. Trench shovels work well, but so do spades. Pizza will be served. Humoldt Park (near North and Kimball).
I mentioned this project at the Permaculture Guild meeting on 10/21. It was a delight to meet you all! I warmly welcome you to come by and dig or just take a look and see what we are up to.
