We have had a need for a space to be able to build things with out getting in the way of all the days to day work we do at the Natural Farm and Aquaponics.
This area over by the IMO Pig area was covered in Elephant grass, hiding who know what with piles of tin, planks of scaffolding and tent pipes.
We had the Trail Blazers working with us in the afternoons for the 4th quarter of 2016, and together we did a massive job of reclaiming this bit of land.
This is what we have today.
So what are we going to do with this?
Make stuff, of course. Have fun, definitely. Build skills, yes.
When you can make something you need, repair some thing you broke, fix some thing that wore out, then you become the creator of your own destiny. Not depended on the Global supply chain.
Even better than that, when you have learnt how to learn you can work side by side with some one, even when you do not speak the same language, you can open their world up to you, becoming a servant learner. In letting them teach you new skills, you not only learn, you free them to also learn, not as sage on a stage, but by their side. Each learning from the other.
