The Green House

West central co-housing gardening/ animal keeping/education experiment

Author: Redurth
Summer of 2012 these 2 city lots were purchased with a vision.

6 housemates and a dog this Spring are planting the seeds along with youth around the area.

I, Adam Brown, pruned up a cherry in the front and planted some gifted Comfrey, from a member at the last meeting, underneath. I also pruned up some original? Lilacs and Honeysuckle that may have been planted in the mid 20th century. My friend Beth Mort helped me start up some compost. My friend Ed Bryant stopped by and gave me some pointers and my buddy Dan Dengler removed one of the 9 Silver maples in order to allow some more Sun on the empty lot where the future greenhouse may be and also to provide lumber for the future dining table.

Siemen Family Farms, Inc.

Herb and Edibles Farm in the heart of Spokane

Really, just an excuse to post pics from last year!  But seriously it's always changing around here so hopefully no view so strikes you you'll be upset by it changing. February 1st marks the beginning of a whole new season of work, planting, expanding, learning, meeting new friends, and growing more food for ourselves and the Main Market Co Op where we primarily have offered herbs but have an open door to other surpluses.  Who knew?!
