Tonight is a music night (we have them twice a month), Wednesday night is bookclub, Saturday is a community fire at neighboring Potluck Farm, next week there is a discussion on the book Die Wise, and on the 12th we're having a meeting to talk about our vision, our personal inspirations and how to make it really live at Elderberry. And that's just the next two weeks! We eat together once or twice a month, sometimes planned and sometimes spontaneous (we hope to do this more when we are all living there). And of course all of our activities are voluntary - we all have different interests!
Today we did have another workday, this one at Bella Vista. Bella Vista is a 11.5 acre piece of property that is jointly owned and maintained by Elderberry and neighboring Potluck Community Farm. It has a beautiful view, and we are working over time to maintain the view by keeping the hilltop cleared (it was clear cut before we bought it). There are a LOT of rocks, which makes this task challenging.
Today was sunny and 68 degrees and a handful of hardworking souls came out to enjoy the perfect weather and to help move rocks so that Phil could bush hog. We definitely got our exercise!
