Preparing Garden Beds

Team Earth has been very busy today as they have been bustling around the greenhouse. They started off  watering garden beds with a long hose.

Next, they will create a new garden bed, such as this one below:

They are spreading biodegradable plastic among the garden bed and then they will dig holes through the plastic and into the dirt. Next, they will plant their vegetables!

Team Earth has also built a mud wall around the rocket stove in the center of the greenhouse. The purpose for the rocket stove is to create biochar while keeping the greenhouse warm on brutal winter days. The mud wall will support the integrity of the rocket stove.
