Nourishing life, community, family, home.

Spring-ing quickly…

What a spring! At the beginning of March winter was still thoroughly enmeshed in my life and travel. Peter Bane and I travelled to a weekend course with The Resiliency Institute in Naperville, IL. It was a wonderful course–graduating 13 fantastic students with vision, heart, and some serious skills.

In mid-April we ventured to Terre Haute and Indiana State University to table at the Earth Day celebration and meet some wonderful people connected with the community there. Food forest on campus?

Now, with nearly 80 degree days, thunderstorms, and a sudden burst of flowers in the garden, we are rushing to catch up with spring garden tasks…Life is full and good. There are several permaculture designers a few decades after Mollison uttered the words “the designer becomes the recliner” wondering when that day comes. I think they also realize that, though the garden, teaching, and designing is a busy life, it is also immensely rewarding.
