Just a Brush Pile by Jackie Spurlin

Let me tell you about my business partners and the relationship we have built.  It is actually the result of a very organized process that begins with a hand saw each and every year in early October, and ensues in my backyard food forest with the impending change of the seasons.

Rewards Reaped! by Jeff Cantrell

The first reward for us is an understanding.  The second reward for my naturalist friends and our community team is a festival atmosphere and we got it!  We would have been there in the bitter cold, but fortunately the day was spectacular. We would have been there if only a few people showed, but the public ushered in by the hundreds.
