Gardening endeavors- rural style

This is one of our most recent projects happening in the parking lot of Ethos.  It’s fully up and running with some room left in the boxes to plant.  This endeavor has lead us to a larger pursuit of creating an outdoor patio that the young people of Mariposa can construct based on what they want.  Nick is our garden shifu who initiated and built the boxes.  The following photos is the building process and contributors along the way.  Enjoy.
