remembering spaces

as we gear up for another big transition, i am thinking deeply about places jacob and i have lived and grown in the past years and feeling so much gratitude for all of the different teachings they offered us. i have been thinking a lot about the beauties and joys of living in community at Woolman, and how much we deepened our relationship and our work there. i just stumbled upon these pictures of the edible forest garden we put in there in year one. it was the first e.f.g. we designed and installed together, and such a joy to look back on today. fun to see the abundance, and to think about what we do entirely different now. i wonder about where we will be next, and all that we will learn there.
