For every season, turn, turn. A season to plant, a season to harvest, and a season to get swamped by “life.” Ah, this is the true struggle of being a monk in the modern world. All the same, spring has sprung once again, and the monk house is abuzz with activity. Br. Addison continues his plans for the permaculture gardens, and I’m working on an aquaponics system for the newly refurbished solarium. With warm weather here (welll, hot weather really: Georgia doesn’t have seasons, it has mood swings…), we’re back outside, carting in compost, and planting away. So stay tuned! This is what we have to look forward to in the next few months in the Alleluia Garden:
Fishes and flooding – what on earth is aquaponics?
Zum zums – honey bees, please!
And of course, lots more of urban organic gardening!
