Finally the rains came! What a relief they were. As usual the creeks came up but fortunately with the work National Parks did last year there was no erosion to the causeway entrance through Koreelah National Park. Our new ford at the Harvest Field Crossing worked brilliantly also, so no worries about bridges washing away anymore.
There was a little erosion to the road from run-off but our working bee friends hopped onto that and did a great job to widen the flow path of the water. Thanks Everyone!!
The great event of the weekend was the completion of our two Nature Loo composting toilets. The toilets were purchased but of course the poles came from the forest (we are quite experts at de-barking trees now), everything else was recycled materials. We were especially delighted with our ornate carved doors at 2 for $5.
He who puts the ridge-cap on gets to cut the toilet paper ribbon. Go Doone!!
We are looking to put a start to our community veggie garden for which we will need lots of compost. A good way to do that is to have a chicken caravan and if you haven't checked out Geoff Lawton's Chicken tractor on steroids -without the steroids- do have a look. http://www.geofflawton.com/
So, we have made a start and found a trailer, nicely painted by Lori, Carol & Nikki and an old caravan has been sourced by David which is 'ripe for renovation' into our new Happy Hen Hotel. Updates to follow!!
