Sausa Farm is Born! And the start of the Rainy Season!

The Sausa Farm has officially started during the rain season of 2018. During the rainy season our first focus is to ensure we restore the health of the soil by encouraging beneficial microbes and beneficial insects.

There's different ways to do this naturally and we've decided on a healthy balance of growing legumes like cow peas, inviting beneficial insects by growing sunflowers, and covering weeds and breaking hard soils using rye grass. Over the course of the next month, these plants will slowly restore the health of our future homestead + farm and add organic matter as they die and re-seed.
