We have been developing an area in our garden where we have made a maze of
pathways through a large blackberry patch. The pathways are to be wheel
chair accessible. So far we have about a thousand feet of pathways which
makes for a much accessible picking area. We are hoping for funding in the
near future to make it more accessible to persons with limited mobility.
Recently we have had the opportunity to have a dozen beehives in our
garden. We noticed that we had a larger that usual amount of berries in our
blackberry patch, and the garden thrived because of the beneficial
pollinating activities of the bees. We also were able to share this
experience with the children that were involved in our programs. The honey
that the bees produced was quite substantial and was enjoyed by all.
There are very many worthwhile additions to our garden, one of them being
40 foot long structures with laying spaces called chicken tractors. These
are cage-like structures that have no floor and are moved through the
garden area. The chickens that are in this structure tear up the ground and
fertilize it at the same time and the chickens also produce organic eggs.
The type of hens that we have are called Isiys.
