Well, it has taken us awhile to write about it, but our Fourth Annual Celebrate Sustainability Event at Mountain Sky Ranch was a huge success. We had beautiful weather, great attendance, and a good time was had by all. We had a handful of vendors and exhibitors, and we filled the day with tours, lectures and our famously good raffle give-aways. And, as last year we capped off the amazing day with almost three hours of blues and other awesome music from Davey and the Blue Dog.
A highlight was our newly operating commercial scale Feed in a Box system, where we are now producing over 1000 lb. per day of delicious livestock micro-greens (sometimes called fodder). We have a 40 foot long shipping container that has been used for our building for our proprietary system. Dustin Dorband designed this incredible system, and we have now been successfully operating it and getting daily nutritious livestock feed for over two months.
There were hayrides for the kids, fishing all day in the ponds and a recycled box building center. Several young folks caught their first fish ever. What a joy. The baby alpacas were a treat to see and guests were able to see our aquaponics systems functioning also.
We are looking forward to year five in 2013 and many years to come. Come and visit us when you get a chance.
