Earth Day Event! And a retraction…
Dear loyal readers…two items of importance today.
First of all, on Sunday, April 22, 2012, we will be telling Mother Nature how much she means to us and how much we hope she doesn’t buy into all this talk of the 2012 apocalypse in the form of a potluck! There are more details listed on our Events page, but here are the most important logistics…
Location: Stockton Farm
As we say, the more the merrier, so come on out and sit in the shade of our fruit tree!
(It’s got potential!)
Secondly, it has been brought to our attention by one of our faithful readers that there is quite a difference between “dirt” and “soil”, as used to discuss The Great Dirt Pile of 2012. Apparently, it should now be known as The Great Soil Pile of 2012. For those interested enough to wonder why, our reader Bob gives us the dirt on soil:
“Dirt refers to any general displaced particles…of anything, really. Soil is the appropriate term to describe material in various states of decomposition that is being recycled into the environment.” So soil it is. Our apologies to the soil, for associating it with the wrong crowd, though it leads one to wonder if the dirt to soil transition occurred when it was moved from its non-functional pile on the sidewalk to an actual part of the living, breathing Stockton Farm inside the gates. See how when you volunteer here, you actually become a part of nature’s process?
