One of the reasons we came to farming is the community-ness of it--a way of bringing people together--a place for relationship building. This past long weekend was what we were envisioning. Our son Nate (23) came from Reno to help with some major building projects. We now have a 100 foot 'high tunnel' greenhouse in the Bridlewood garden and an 8' deer fence around that new garden. Dad helped with putting fence posts in while Mom and I planted potatoes. Our friend Smuel prepared the rows to put potatoes in. And, another very good friend, Dan Andersen, came over on his first day of 'retirement' to help frame a walk-in cooler in the metal building. Beats watching TV!
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
