Breathing and Dancing with life!
We have enjoyed a late season Indian Summer--with temperatures in the 80's and bright hot sun! This morning, I feasted on figs made ripe in the heat. Yesterday, I watered for hours in the hoop house to keep the fall crops from dying in the heat over 100 degrees in the enclosed area.
What a roller coaster this is! I now farm the present moment. In the garden this morning, the red okra blossoms burst forth in the heat; the tithonia share their brillant orange. Cooler weather is coming over the weekend...

Mark your calendars and plan to come honor your ancestors!
In this family-oriented event, led by Grandmother Michelle Moreau and Paul Thomas, we will honor our deceased loved ones (family, friends and pets) by placing photos, or mementos and a small offering of food or flowers on a community altar. We will share stories, dance, sing songs and drum in the Old Chestnut Barn. Weather permitting, we will then send offerings into the fire. Snacks will be provided.
All are welcome to bring food to share and percussion instruments to play, if desired. Cost: $10/adult; $15 parent and child; $25/family. Space is limited. Register here.
