Staying grounded

The silo on the farm belonged to my great-great-grandfather. It doesn't look like much, I know. It's not the most beautiful or modern or architecturally composed part of the space. But its beauty comes from its history, and the stories it was a part of. You have to look a little closer to find it. That, more than anything, makes it special.

We're finding those little hints of beauty all around us these days. We're able to listen deeply to one another's hopes and fears and stories. Just like every spring, we're thinking about the world and our place in it: how we fit into this context, this time and place. And finding our place in this community is an ongoing joy.

In prepared plots on the farm, people in our summer flower gardening course have planted their gardens. In just a little while, they'll be overflowing with blooms. We've stocked the greenhouse and the dirt house with greens we can't wait to share with you. We're continuing and expanding our collaboration with Communal to bring salad kits to the Farmstand. There's beauty everywhere. All you have to do is look.
