It was so amazing. I really can't even put it all into words. Magic :)

Oh my, thank you for the sweet words. I just see myself as a facilitator to the true inspirations….. these young souls!! Amazing, each and every one of them!

I just sort of stopped showing up here. It’s easy to do. The herb journey has been wonderful! I’m still tweaking a digestive tea blend, but when it tastes a little better and feels right I’ll be sure to share it here. Tea infusions daily are so nourishing and so life changing!

It is so fun and easy! And yes, my herbalist path is so similar to yours. On and off through the buy-ness of little ones….. then on full speed just recently. It’s exciting. I’m glad you guys are interested in hearing about my journey :)

I really hope you get to be part of the magic one day, you would LOVE it. And I feel the same, this is such a good thing I am doing for me..... which I'm not very good at sometimes :)

I totally get that!! My number one goal in creating this space was to provide a nurturing environment for young people to hang out in. Art was secondary. The "means to the magic" if you will. Especially with my older group, I notice a need for them to collaborate and be together…. it’s really been amazing to be part of that. xo!

Thank you Taryn, admittedly I am struggling to find balance with such a big new undertaking, but it’s been amazing! I love it so much!

First (I feel kinda bad about this, but it's the truth) instagram ate my blog. I'm not alone in this. It has eaten several. It's so ridiculously easy to stay connected over there, and I've turned into the worst blogger ever. Such a bad blogger that in this post I am sharing all instagram photos in this post of the...

Oh my goodness! That is a LOT of students. I’ll keep you posted on the craft-mama-art nights this fall. I think it will be a really fun way to get together :) (ps - on a completely different note, the display table at the symposium had your picture on it!)

We would love anything in the "outdoor kit" section! But especially the Botanist Kit as we'll be studying Botany over the summer!
Thank you Andrea :) We’ve been having a lot of fun!

We used a low-fire earthenware for the pinch pots & tiles. Those will be fired in a kiln & the kids will glaze them & then we’ll fire them a second time. The puppets were made with red air dry clay I purchased at a local craft supply shop.

Your dream sounds completely amazing! It’s so similar to what I hope for someday as well. To create a nurturing place of learning. May all your dreams come true! xo~

The last two weeks have been incredible and busy. I wanted to share some of what we've been working on in The Workshop. My students are wonderful! I am truly enjoying this bit of time with them. I have two classes divided into age groups that run an hour and a half each week. So far we've mostly worked with... Continue reading

Hello Helen, I would use about 12 ounces of homemade pumpkin/squash puree. Homemade is a bit more wet, so I always use a little less when I make it myself. Enjoy :)

Have you tried netting? It isn’t pretty, but it’s the only thing that every worked for me. I like the fine mesh better… sort of like mosquito netting. But the blueberry farm we go to has the ENTIRE thing netted (sides & top) with green wide netting. You go IN to pick. It works really well for them though!

You have to try the Arugula pesto! It’s especially good on pizza. And with pasta. Yum! And your raised beds!! Oh my!! I am in love with them!

They will all turn into lovely gypsy moths. And I do like moths. (this is what I remind myself) But goodness! I am so tired of them falling out of the trees and landing on me. I can take their little poops falling everywhere…. but getting them in my hair is not my favorite. And guess what? After the first round, the chickens have decided they don’t like them either!! I’ll be glad when they all spin up their cocoons in the next week or so.

We’re expecting a thunderstorm this weekend. I am hopeful for a good bit of rain. And last year caterpillars ate all my kale & collards! Oh they are a menace!

That is exactly what I did last year! I ended up feeding a lot of lettuce to our chickens. I planted a TON of herbs, last year I froze them in ice cubes with butter & lemon. I loved having the flavor of fresh herbs to add to things all winter. And they take up such a small amount of space. I also planted zucchini, tomatoes, peas, and beans. All things we could eat extra of. I miss picking a salad right from the backyard….. but a salad from the next town over is still pretty good :)
