A Living Roof

Image

One of my favorite activities at Dancing Rabbit thus far has been helping a couple build a living roof atop their cob home. We had a bucket brigade system, transferring the soil from a pile in front of their house along a chain of folks to the final two guys who were standing on top of the roof for most of the morning. We got a lot accomplished! And we got delicious homemade lemonade as a reward for our hard work to boot! We plan on going back next week to finish the task. After the roof is set, Hassan and Danielle will scatter the seeds of vegetables and native grasses to hold the soil. It will be quite a site by this autumn!
