Unloading Soil at the DUMP

We moved over 135,000 lbs of soil from our garden to the dump to create the trilobite swale which will capture rainwater runoff from the park above and distribute it to our edible tree forest!! Each and every load has had to be filled and then emptied by hand… what a labour of love this has been!!
