Sailing the farm tribe - Mid august 2010.
Its been a busy august. 9 happy boatbuilding girls and guys have been
here during august and it has been quite busy. We have done quite a
lot of work on the boatproject and have been workingon important but
tedious small stuff like watertanks, coolingtank etc.
We are also working on finding ecovillages on different continent
which we will be a part of the plan when the journey begins. In short
we will sail between ecovillages and change crew and stock up with
to reach other ecovillages on different continents. if you know
about some ecovillages close to sea which could be interested in
participate please inform us.
But we will try to be as selfsufficient as possible onboard and will
test a small scale hydrophonic solution to grow vegetables while
sailing with as little water
usage as possible. Not easy on a boat but
hopefully manage to get some fresh food
... (getting enough water
always problem on a boat)
Then some farm news: We are expanding the garden to grow more tasty
vegetables next year. Even if the fall is coming soon we will try to
grow some more fast growing salads until snow is coming. Our extremely
slow growing tomatoes will be moved indoors and continue with help of
growlamp in our greenhouse. Bees are doing good and we have already
processed some delicous honey from this year. (pure organic stuff)
We have some space for late september and onwards if you are
interested in joining this cool sea-gypsy project
. Just drop us a line.
Peace and love from
Then some pictures. (we are not always working, one picture is a bunch
of happy boatbuilding guys after swimming in the brrr cold lake)
