Growing Together in Troubled Times

Hello Friends,

Sometimes the world has a way of putting your priorities into perspective.

It goes without saying that COVID-19 is on all our minds. Whether you’ve experienced this virus so far as a worrisome headline, an economic hardship, or a personal tragedy, these are unsettling times.

And we’re all in it together.

COVID-19 came to my community this past week (when this message was published on March 17th, 2020). At least that’s when it was first confirmed.

In just a few days, schools, libraries, public offices, restaurants, and many other businesses all closed their doors. Life outside the home has ground to a halt.

Like so many others around the world, we’re extremely concerned about our loved ones and our community.

We feel fortunate to have a safe, warm and beautiful place to call home—where being “homebound” feels like release, rather than confinement.

Most people aren’t so lucky. And many people are weathering this storm in the cold.

COVID-19 has been a reminder that, despite what we may hear, we are all connected. And nature still has the upper hand.

We’re doing what we can to help slow the spread of this disease in our community.

And also keeping centered on the things that make us whole—

Working on the wild homestead, and helping others work with nature to cultivate abundance.

If you’re interested, you can take a sneak peak at the new Patreon site we’re fine-tuning. More details coming soon.

No new blog post this week. But if working the land is the medicine your heart needs right now, here are some posts to get you on your feet.

Stay healthy, friends.

And as always…

Keep on Growing
