In a few short weeks, I’ll be starting a hive at the Sunshine Community Garden in central Austin.
The hive is going to be behind the garden’s offices and away from the main planting areas.
The first step was to weed and remove brush from the area.
I then put down a layer of decomposed granite to create a level base. Here’s a shot of me using my amazing upper body strength to tamp a level surface.
I’m using two cinder blocks as a hive stand. You can see that my B.S in Architectural Engineering is finally paying off as I level them.
After getting the site prepared, a wander around the gardens makes me think the girls will be very happy here.
