Inner farm work

I haven't been ill in a very long time... and this week I found myself with a raging sore throat, aches and other unpleasant symptoms.    I attribute this to a deeper internal transformation underway.  In my experience, my resistance is lower than usual to such influences when I am deeply open to change... 

Lucky me!  (really!)  I get the chance to just STOP, take care of myself and find my center.  In my weakened state, with gentle self-care, I am treated to a brilliant autumn display here at Dancing TreePeople Farm.  Armed with a few throat lozenges,  hot tea, and spiced with honey from our farm ---I let the sun warm my face, tend to my aching body.  How good it is to sink into the beauty of this place and allow it to heal me. 

What is Permaculture?


Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is an ecological design framework inspired by living systems. The ethics, root practices and principles in permaculture can be applied to the garden, the farm, and indeed any living system including human structures.
