MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
Good luck with your farm! We'd love to hear your experiences. In fact, let me know if you'd like to start a special interest group just for farmers like yourself. Perhaps you could call it Farmers outstanding in their field. LOL
Yes Robin, I can guarantee The Way of Nature is "interesting" for sure. It can be challenging, intimidating, nurturing, disturbing, delightful, liberating and nourishing to choose just a few inadequate adjectives to describe how profound the experience is for the mind, body and spirit all at once! I'm still learning after nearly 20 years of participating as both a student and a guide. Great Nature continues to amaze! :) Bud
