Today Karin and I visited Stacken to help participate in their workday (held regularly throughout the year to take care of major house cleaning and maintenance). It was a wonderful and fun way to meet more Stacken members and get our hands dirty! I helped out in the kitchen in the morning (chopping lots of veggies for a tasty, warm midday meal) and together Karin and I raked leaves in the afternoon. At the end of the day, we collected everyone during an informal fika to share the results of an “Urban Farming” project we had just completed for our course, in which we explored the possibility of Stacken becoming self-sustainable with a greenhouse, vertical facade plants, greywater recycling, and much much more! Check out our posters in the Stacken dining room to see all our crazy (green) ideas!
