This last weekend was an awesome break from the ranch. we were able to get a great start on Nik and carissas garden and set the stage for what our community gardening outreach program might look like.  Its so much more fun to drink a beer and garden with 10 of your friends than it is to dig a hole by yourself and we got a ton of stuff done!
- designed garden zones and lay out
- trenched and installed 300ft of 1/2' irrigation line with 11 sprinklers
- two port timer for garden and cold frame
- built a 4 shelf seed starter cold frame with timed misters
- compost tea and worm bin system
- planted over 200 seeds
- went through a lot of wonderful San Diego brewed beer!!!

All in all id say it was a pretty productive weekend. give it a few weeks until them seeds are started guys and we will be back for the planting party.



 
 
We are excited to announce that RSR has finally come to a point where we can open our gates to the public for community gardening.

Here's the info:

Each Community Member will be allowed a 400sqft   garden space capable of producing more than 2000lbs of vegetables a year.

Dear, friends and family
     we are excited to announce the beging of a collective effort for what we hope to become a beautiful organization of natural grown creativity.

      Weekends at the ranch will be a casual opportunity for new members to get involved in the various upcoming projects and events on the ranch and within the artist collective. we encourage you to come out and enjoy a full weekend or even a few hours to see whats going on and find your space within the vision.
Below is the tenative schedule for weekends at the ranch. 

** If you would like to attend a weekend at the ranch or a portion of the weekend, please RSVP under the Events page and include the # of guest so we know how many people are coming.

-Friday - Pot luck 6pm
RSR welcomes members to set up their tent in our camping area and enjoy a potluck dinner around the fire. We will have a general "check-in" and organize the next mornings work orders.

-Saturday-  Collective work day
 Wake up to sunrise with a morning Om. We will begin with fun projects that generally take one day to complete. Saturdays projects will focus on a collective effort to build collective benefits such as a pizza oven for us all to enjoy large outdoor meals. Saturdays will also be used to work on upcoming events such as stage desing or preparing for festivals. Night time will conclude with some form of entertainment such as film screening or performance.

-Sunday- Fun day
 Wake up to sunrise with a morning Om. A day to relax and enjoy ourselves and the work we have done. Members will have the chance to do some yoga, have a great breakfast do some meditation or use one of the workshops/spaces to work on your art project. Sunday is basically a free day with a few guidlines and boundary limitations but with the focus on creating and expressing our individual selves.  Come sunset the board of directors will gather around the fire once again to hold our weekly chapter meeting. Members are welcome to attend and encouraged to make their voice heard with respect to the agenda at hand.

***Can't take a weekend out of your schedule?*****
Dont worry if you cant make it all weekend come to what you can, come to what your interested in. This is just the start of things and we are excited for your involvement. As things evolve so will structure so, we encourage memebers to express their ideals and make their voice heard at sunday chapter meetings either by making an appearance or sending an email to info@risingsunranchcsa.com with the subject title CHAPTER MEETING + that sunday's date.
