This morning was a bit shorter than usual, since we started out with a clearing, where we shared any thoughts on things that are getting in the way of our full enjoyment of and participation in our work and community. It was both a rewarding and comforting experience, and added to our communal karma. We followed up our talk with some more Guadua trimming, again doing our best to avoid the thorns.
This afternoon friends of ours from Hale Akua farm on a permaculture course came by for a tour of our farm. We took them all over our facilities, explaining the basics of bamboo farming and sharing our nursery, fruit orchards, hardwoods, and bamboo groves. We also were happy to share how we use permaculture techniques are a large scale, recycling organic material throughout the different parts of our farm.
