Hey everyone, it’s been an eventful week with the ATC going on. We’ve been working on junk pole fencing, battery maintenance, whitewashing, gardening and helping in the kitchen. I love being busy and learning from the group of people that are here right now. I attached some fun photos below.

Hey everyone, the past two days have been filled with fun stuff as the ATC is still going on. We’ve been working on limewashing and a lot of cobbing. We spent the entire day at the lab which is always my favorite place to work. The wofati is coming along at the Abbey and I can’t wait to keep working on it. I’m still missing the east coast but I think I’m adjusting well to life in the mountains. I attached some photos below and am adding some videos to my youtube!

Hey permies people, today there were a lot of projects being worked on including the berm shed, a glass recycler and greasing the bearings. I think being here during the ATC is an amazing opportunity to work on some great projects. The days go by so quick when we’re all laughing and working together and I couldnt ask for more. I attached some photos below!

Hey everyone, today was another busy day at WL! To start the morning off we watered the apricots and lilacs. Cass and I then went with Rodney to get some water for the berms but wound up having to fix the truck to do this. After lunch we installed a hand watering station and then made and applied another coat of limewash. I can’t believe the ATC is over tomorrow or that it’s friday because the days are flying by. I also can’t believe its almost the one month mark!

I know! I can’t believe it has almost been a whole month. Can’t thank you enough for the kind words and encouragement along the way<3

Just remember that you have "a spot to be" on the East coast, even if you are "just passin' through".

Hey everyone, today was the last day of the ATC and things are winding down. This morning we did some chores, limewashing and then in the afternoon we helped out in the kitchen making pizza for the pizza party.! I’m so tired and can’t wait to rest.

It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
