Hill of abundance update.

Its only been a day but I am so excited with how our biochar industries project is coming along. Today a few different people dropped by and we had a crack at finishing the first of our garden huts.

Here are last weeks progress photos on the garden huts.

Making concrete for the garden hut footings

Charmaster Dolph Cooke learning many new skills as part of his Bush Mechanics training. Doing is the new skill and I am really enjoying doing.

We mesured out the footings then dug them out with a manual post hole digger.
Then added the steel saddles and lined them up just right before pooring in the concrete.

The bush doctor dropped down early today and he had brought a friend with him. Bulli is his name and this guy has just cycled halfway across china to come to the hill of abundance. He is our furthest guest so far originally he is from Holland.

Here I am going for a tractor ride luckily we are 5 kilometers deep in the forest no pesky O H and S whistleblowers to be found anywhere. Seriously kids don’t try this at home.

Above shows the roof poles in place. Not a particularily hard feat but very good looking. With all our non skills the roof was slanting in justr the right direction for us to collect water at the back away from the sunlight.

So far this project has cost a little over $100.00. At Biochar Industries our new paradigm thinking is setting some pretty exciting benchmarks.

The Bush Doctor and the Charmaster and all the bush mechanics say R.

Reuse / Repair / Refashion / Retrieve / Reinvent / Replenish / Recapture before Recycle. Sustainable means geting the same or more energy out of a system.

See you next Update
