If putting a bird on it signifies approval, then we must have succeeded. We really value our volunteers, who were happy to return after a couple of weeks of difficulty in getting here.

With the melting of the snow and ice (though there are still a few pockets of snow around that didn’t melt completely), Obrist got back to the job of moving the surcharge from the Cohousing site (where it had finished doing its job) to the site of the future school building. A grant made it possible to do the work now, even though the school building is some years in the future. So be prepared for a somewhat different landscape when you return on Sunday.

We continue to work on finishing details inside and outside the Sodo, as well as on landscaping. Regular Wednesday work parties are a great way to spend time with sangha doing useful things on the property. There are plenty of tasks for everyone who shows up between 9:30am-3pm. If you are around for lunch time (12:30pm), you get lunch for free.
