Everyone’s favorite WWOOFer is back!


IMG_20160523_122534854_HDRSince the last time I spent some much needed time at Light Footsteps (read about it here), I’ve finally realized that growing things, and teaching communities how to grow things, is actually really important to me. Because of that, I’ve recently started a journey to becoming an urban farmer. Over the past week, however, I’ve taken a break from stressing over the approaching school year to try out a different season at Light Footsteps. You’ll have to forgive me, because the August humidity has all my thoughts jumbled, so I’ll keep the words short and share some photos of this week with you.


Most of my mornings were spent spreading wood chips on the paths in the Keyhole Garden


I finally got to meet Pony. I would hate to make him insecure about his size, but in my mind he’s a horse.


I spent the cooler afternoons picking herbs (peppermint, thyme, oregano, sage, and lemon balm pictured here)


or beans!


luckily there were rainy days


…and there were a lot of sunny days to share with our pollinator friends.


The bees really love the Rose of Sharon.


On a particularly sunny day we went to Red Beet Row to see their permaculture farm.

There was a lot of child-wrangling during the stay. Pictured is another WWOOFers son, Sebastian.


Cora has grown up so much since I last saw her! (Photo taken at Chardon’s farmers’ market)


I finished my week off helping Christine share her love of herbalism at a workshop for kids and adults about medicinal plants.

Like always, you can learn more about WWOOF here. Hope to be back soon, but until then, HAPPY GROWING!
