The Green House

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

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.

I'm a local ethnobotany nerd. I helped kick-start Spokane's Permaculture Study Group with Mary Kate Wheeler around the Winter of 2010? at Sun People Dry Goods where I worked for it's first 6 or so months.
