Workday Report

Dear Hartsmiling friends:

Thanks for everyone who could make it for a fine workday yesterday! Many people worked hard, mostly all day: Randy, Paul, Kyle, Colleen, Joe (Colleen's cousin), Rita, Sheffa, Rachel, Peter, Ann-Michelle, and me; with Hope and Amy and Molly (our daughter) able to join for potluck and fire time. Our BIG accomplishment was to finish the Far Field Connector Trail (which is #3 on the attached map pdf — the same one I sent before, but with the completed section now marked over in purple — yay!!). Indeed we took it from a mere blazed route to a usable trail! I also put together some footbridges out of planks, and Rita and Rachel nailed on some mesh fencing for traction and set them into place — a photo of one over the outlet stream (which really needs a name) is attached too. Then a fine fire and fellowship. Beautiful weather too!

Right on — let's do it again!


Workday Gratitude

Many thanks to everyone who showed up for the workday, tours, potluck, camping, etc. on Sunday 10/26! Seventeen people took part total over the course of the day, including two potential members on the tour. Paul and Anthony started the day with mowing, mower maintenance, and weed-whacking to get the main areas ready. When Stephen and Andrea and Donna arrived, we moved over to the newly-tilled wildflower field and started sowing (mix of the bee-forage wildflower mix and leftover clover seed from last year) while also carrying down the kayak and starting to plumb the pond.

Dear Hart’s Mill Members & Friends,
This is your reminder of the upcoming day on the land at Hart's Mill Ecovillage on Sunday, 26 October… with a few updates on plans… including pond plumbing, pumpkin carving, ghost stories, and other Halloween excitements, too. If you've already RSVPed, great — otherwise, now's a good time!

Report from Equinox Work and Tour Day

On Sunday 9/21 the morning commenced with a mowing-and-clearing crew of Randy, Stephen, Paul and Anthony, with Hope joining in early afternoon to help tour a new and promising group of interested folks – Amy joining later for dinner, with Catherine and Wren, at 4 no longer the youngest kid, as Felipe and 2-year-old Michaela joined at dusk. Equinox rounds were sung in honor of the turn of season, and Paul and Anthony closed down the day watching the embers and the stars as darkness fell.

Workday; Tour; Equinox!! 9/21/14

Dear Hart’s Mill Members & Friends,

You are hereby invited to a major day on the land at Hart's Mill Ecovillage on Sunday, 21 September. Greet Fall in earnest on the land!

Many things will be happening: there will be work projects focusing on garden preparation and trail-building, as well as some fall mowing; there will be introductions to the project and land tours for interested newcomers; all capped by a festive meal and fire in honor of the Equinox, now a Hart's Mill tradition. You are very welcome for any part of the festivities you might be able to join.
