Other exciting news concerning the house is that my landlords are absolutely amazing. They own the plot behind our fenced in backyard and are willing to clear it and let me farm it so I can donate the produce to the school district's backpack program! So very pleased that the work I want my non-profit to focus on will begin in the coming Spring!

Speaking of non-profits, I adore volunteering for Gardencorps. I get to be active on a daily basis and work outside (which is only unpleasant when it's freezing cold...any one else concerned with the unseasonable weather in November?). I work with high school students to make sure the Farm is kept in good running order. What I love about the Farm is that a majority of the food we produce is donated to the homeless and hungry students in the district. What an amazing use of space and resources! AND the whole concept was thought up by high school students!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! I look forward to keeping this blog up-to-date next year!
|Did I mention we have bees?! I'm excited to learn more about them in the Spring!|
