Several months have gone by since our last update. The whole growing season has come and gone (for the most part -- though we're still getting a few things out of the greenhouses). Leah has done a good job keeping the gardens productive, along with work-exchangers Rob, Kathy, and others.
As of our last update we were working with the county to update our zoning status, and were hoping to be designated as a farm so we could have educational programs as an "accessory use". Well, we're pleased to announce that the county has agreed to the farm designation and we're moving ahead with new on-site education programs. In October we had "Autumnal bliss" -- the first of our "living with the seasons" seasonal workshops on permaculture, acupuncture, and sustainable living.
