I saw this and thought of the what we do.



“If you want to build a ship,
don't drum up people together to collect wood
and don't assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for
the endless immensity of the sea”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

A love of the land,
patience and concern,
a listening ear and eyes to see,
what is, what can be.

Walking the soggy, half frozen land here.
It is a good time to observe, draw and dream.
Read books, Google plants, make sense.

The nesting Geese are back.
A fox and deer trot across the frozen cattails.

Another month and we begin again.
Bees, Apricot and Kiwi, then Corn, Beans &
Squash.

I wish I could grow time.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
