"Jacq, Would love to speak with him. mnewton73@yahoo.com. The current project is a bit slow, but that is due to our "figure it out" phase. Overabundance of caution. We're itching to break ground soon.   Thank you!  "

About Me:
I am currently a horticultrist at the Phoenix Zoo. Wow what an experience it has been. They've helped with go from learning about just growing edibles organically...to making soil, not buying it in a bag. Composting, terracing, water harvesting, famine foods, irrigation parts and clocks. It's an incredible place to grow with the seasons.
I am also a supporter of farmer's market, natural medicine and creating being outside dancing in the rain or sun! :)
We are transforming our grassy bermuda lot into an edible forest with the intent to be a learning garden.

It all starts in the begining

well i have been raising earth worms for a few years. i got my original stock from a friend moving back east, they were four small coolers with slotted holes. another donation was received around thanksgiving from Greg at the Urban Farm. that nearly doubled our worms' potential.

We compost 100% and started taking in friends' organic produce left overs for compost. the bins are 8 and growing strong. we've sold bags of castings, but the population isn't up enough to sell the worms…

I posted a while back about natural pools. There seems to be a few posts about this, but they are now several years old. I am in Central Phoenix; I have an old Master Pool from the 80s, is a 9' diving pool. Is there something really cheap that can be done to convert this pool to a natural pool? Has anyone converted a pool in the Phoenix area who is willing to share their experience? I would love to hear from them and to find out their ideas, distresses, successes, etc. I am sick of the pool just sitting there taking up electricity and water. I want to grow tilapia and other plants in it, if possible, without a lot of expenses, since I will be on SSA.
