The Purpose-Driven Yard

Manila (10)

A storm-devastated parcel of land, landslide of boulders all over the place, what is there to do? Rather than leave it asunder and give up in hopelessness, I decided to go against the odds and labored months to convert the lot behind the old house into something more productive--a self-sustaining vegetable yard. The difficult part there was, how to dig up the soil from underneath the rubble of rocks that cascaded down the mountains along with the floods. This is the journey.
