Waves of Chammommile surround a patch of artemesia. Spring in the gardens. And right now the gardens need weeding! Justine, above, helps at the market and sometimes now in the gardens. I am a host for WWOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) and will be having various individuals from all over the country and the world coming through later in the summer. For now, I'm glad to have what help I can find from local folks. Some want to learn more about gardening, or about herbs, or about plant medicine. Some want to trade services (like weeding!) for products like produce or plants or a workshop fee or some bodywork.
I like to trade. It feels good to me. So if you are interested in doing some weeding or helping at the Saturday market in return for something I have to give, let me know. In the meantime, I'm spending every available minute in the quiet, contemplative, satisfying act of weeding.
