These marigolds make me smile! They are the happiest flowers I have ever experienced, planted from seed by Tas and Chase, our wonderful permaculturists.

This hugekultur bed retains water better than any raised bed. I hardly water it at all, whereas I am watering the plants in pots every few days.

One person said that this is the best view in the Ozarks. I’m not sure of that, but I do know that this beautiful Prayer Lake and the surrounding community of Living Springs which we are a part of us is such a blessing. We feel safe because we know all our neighbors and they are wonderful people

Blanca is the daughter of a feral cat that Robert was able to tame. She was an indoor cat for a good part of her life, but now out in the country, she has chosen to be mostly outdoors, and I love to see her jumping over rocks as agile as a mountain goat.

Moringa is a super food that you can buy in powder form. I decided to try growing the plants from seed, and now we have about 25 plants. I put fresh moringa in my smoothies as the greens. The plants are thriving! This may be a community business some day.

I absolutely love working with my son, Chris, who is multi talented​ and fun to work with. I feel grateful to have had him for many months so we can really gain momentum. He will be leaving us soon, and I will miss him. And I want the best for him!
