Weekly Update 5-05-2009

Posted May 5th, 2009

The month of April has breezed by with many eventful weekends. The 2009 yoga retreat was a great success, thank you to all instructors, guests, and staff who participated. The karma yoga workshop allowed the guests to give some love to our vegetable and herb gardens, and the candle meditation lit up our sacred labyrinth. A local farmer from Savannah even contributed a delicious 3 ft long winter squash which we cooked up into a delicious soup on Saturday night.

This week we look forward to working on our cobb oven and rocket stove project, along with the living roof that hovers above. The garden and gardeners are currently working hard to produce our next seasons harvest of watermelon, cantaloupe, winter and summer squash, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and much more. In between all this hard work, we also look forward to swimming in our beautiful lake and back stroking in our freshly cleaned pool.

May the Forest Be With You
