Plaster party

I love Saturdays at TLC Farm! This past Saturnday, a bunch of us gathered in the outdoor kitchen to put earthen plaster on the cob bench under the nearby cedar tree. With the help of some Lewis and Clark students and other new Farm friends, we sifted clay, mixed it with sand, straw and water, and gently applied the muddy plaster to protect our nice bench.

As we worked, we listened to KBOO and discussed the value of locally-powered community radio, and welcomed visitors who dropped in to check out the Farm (a few of which even pulled off their shoes and jumped into the mud mixing!).

Yay for workparties!
