It has been kind of quiet here, because well, it is spring, and that means that all my primary focus has shifted outside the house. The period from May 1 to June 15 is the busiest, craziest, wildest period of the year, and the shoulder season, ie, the month of April, its biggest rival. We…

Adapting In Place Class Coming Up

I still have space in the Adapting in Place Class that starts next week – the last one for some time, I suspect, given other projects (I have to write the book about Adapting in Place, for example ;-)). aron and I will be running our Adapting in Place Class online for six weeks beginning…

I am *still* without full access to my email, although new stuff is at least being forwarded to Eric’s account.

I’ll be offline until Tuesday of next week, running my winter apprentice weekend (or Goat Camp as one attendee called it ;-)). The next one will be offered in May, and will be a family-friendly long weekend (tentatively Memorial Day weekend – I’ll confirm that in the next week). You can bring the kids, stay…

Various Updates: First of all, Aaron Newton and I will be offering the Adapting-in-Place class again for the very last time for at least six months, and maybe longer. So if you’ve ever thought of taking the class, now is the time! Adapting in Place is my favorite class – it covers everything from what’s…

This is the the time of year for most of us when everything is ripe and abundant in our gardens and at local farms, and learning to put food up can make it possible for you to enjoy summer in winter, and continue eating locally as long as possible. It can be overwhelming when you…

Stuff

I’m about to go out of town for three days to a conference on dealing with poverty issues, energy depletion and climate change, and I’m a little nervous. We’ve had no babies born since Meadowsweet’s appearance two weeks ago, and I have three does due in the next week – not only am I a…
