The Town has been fairly empty this July, but this hasn’t kept us from bringing people together!
Bee-Keeping Workshop: A great group of interested people attended our beekeeping workshop on July 19, learning more about fall hive management and harvesting honey. Everyone got the chance to run the honey extractor. Special thanks to Bonnie & Gary Morse of Bonnie Bee & Co.
Community Council: Our first Community Council on July 19 was well received with good attendance and heartfelt contribution from all participants. The council focused on community, bringing forth a variety of experiences and ways to be in community, including both the benefits and the challenges.
Two images come to mind as I remember this first council: First, of being a child having fun in a summer gathering while the mothers prepared a meal. And second, of being at a large, busy, and diverse conference, having an un-planned free hour which was spent alone in a garden and then feeling deeply connected to everyone.
We look forward to the wisdom and plans for action that will emerge from our monthly councils. Many thanks to Teya Valentina Chavez for co-facilitating and sharing her lovely Sol Space for this event.
