First day at home in a month!

What a treat this morning to wake up when I felt like it and read in bed for 30 minutes before I even got up! Everything always takes longer than I imagine though. I got some beautiful Italian greens in the ground from Bountiful Gardens. I'll attach a picture when I have a little more time. The bed behind the house is looking beautiful. I hope the racoons and skunks stay away enough that I can harvest soon. The drip irrigation system I put in works like a charm!
Still have to grade a bunch of bioremediation projects - I'm happy with how it turned out and eager to jump in for another inquiry based problem for next quarter. I'll hone my skills at getting the kids to produce meaningful projects each quarter. We're tackling food shed and food systems this quarter - hooray I'll finally have them working on the garden outside our classroom!
Camille and I are hosting a women in permaculture gathering here tonight. It's time the women in my sustainability circles come together and support each other. Especially in the permaculture world! It's been a man's world for a long time. Most of the big teachers in the States are men. I'm excited to help usher in hte next generation of women leaders in the movement!
