Work Weekends at the Wise Woman Center
We had a wonderful, joyous, productive work weekend April 23-24.
Gratitude to all the helpers, past, present and future.
We couldn't make the cheese you love without your help.
The high point of our weekend was welcoming new baby goats.
They are about one hour old in the photos.
Some of us worked in the nettle garden: raking, pulling dead stalks, and harvesting.
It looks so pretty now.
We made nettle soup of course, and yummy fresh nettle pesto. So good.
Others tackled the barn. We got Erishkegal's stall down to the bare boards.
Then we started a new compost pile.
While we moved finished compost — two trucks worth — we were visited by the new baby bunnies born to our "adventure rabbits." White Rabbit jumped out of the cage last spring and was joined by Wild Hare in the autumn. They live under the barn and in the hay, where, obviously, they are busy creating more generations. They make us smile (except when they eat my tulips). Then we built a new door on the new mom's stall and picked wild salad.
We enjoyed all the flowers: The daffodils were in riotous laughter.
The wild tulips were shining.
The marsh marigold awed us.
Come join us for a few hours or a whole weekend. There's always something glorious happening here. Green blessings abound.
