I am overjoyed that we can buy many of our building supplies from Habit for Humanities’ thrift store. Robert has made friends with the workers at the store, including the little dog!
Hugelkultur is the name of a form of gardening that we are using. Chase and Taz, local permaculture designers, helped to design and build the raised beds in our garden area. Jonny, our visiting permaculture designer, commented on the gardens.
I love how our project is giving me the opportunity to reconnect with Taina, who is helping us with various essential duties including helping me learn how to put pictures on WordPress, social media, Apple device tutoring, editing, and SEO development.
What are the chances that she would live next door, so I can run over there and ask her quick questions!? I met her ten years ago when we had our first and last event on our land–a sustainable living conference.
The reasons why that was the last event in the past decade would take a book to write! The story of the evolution of Taina’s and my friendship would take a book to detail as well. So I hope the words I have written will suffice, and some day the story will be told. It is a beautiful one.
