A Permaculture Day at the Beach

On Friday a mate called me to say there was heaps of seaweed washed up at Castlecliff Beach. This is quite rare.         Screen shot 2015-02-23 at 7.07.57 AM

It wasn’t until Sunday that I got a chance to get there, so we made a morning of it. Verti and Luna and I went to the beach and mama stayed home.

Verti had so much fun playing in the sand.

I had a good surf on my SUP, and then we started collecting seaweed.

When we got home we added the seaweed to our compost piles straight away. We have two piles at the moment that are larger then 1 cubic metre.

The blue hose in the picture above is putting water into the pile as we have had lots of dry weather lately.

It was a perfect permaculture half-day getting “multiple functions” out of our trip to the beach.
