Today I finally remembered to take a photo of the delivery bike in front of our 10 kw solar array. We're generating electricity on the farm with this array and some of the electricity is going into the battery for the electric assist on the Bullitt cargo bike. On Saturday I'll be riding that bike in the Portland Disaster Relief Trials, an event demonstrating the capabilities of cargo bikes to aid in disaster relief efforts. It's a fun event and there'll be a cargo bike showcase and the start and finish which is at OMSI so come down and check it out if you're interested in finding out more.
Resiliency is one of the goals of the farm, the ability to survive all kinds of disasters, large and small. Steps like investing in solar energy, delivering a portion of our shares by electric assist bike, and using electric vehicles and bikes to get around the farm are all small steps we're taking which make the farm more resilient. Choosing to diversify production on the farm, growing a wider variety of crops, and using organic and biodynamic approaches are the really big things we're doing to make the farm resilient, and we hope, disaster resistant.
