We had such a lovely day today - cool and breezy (for July!) and lots of activity! We are building a metal-working/blacksmith shop, and today a few of the guys worked on roofing. We also did a good bit of mowing and gardening, worked on our old log cabin (to be restored), unloaded a truck full of free compost for the gardens and PICKED ELDERBERRIES!! Later in the afternoon we had a salon (discussion group) and talked about the gifts that each of us individually bring to the community. The newest duplex (the grey one in the photos below) should be complete and ready for move-in in about 2 weeks. We will also soon be sharing 2 meals per month together in the common house - yea! Today a few folks worked on re-assembling some donated shelving for the kitchen pantry. Great progress!
