Just what we needed,

More rain. Had we known we’d have

Planted rice paddies.

Farming should be the only

Death poison farms.

Frozen water trough

Wet cat food can frozen meat

It is freezing out

I’m still here!

Hello anyone who looks at my website! It has been a minute. I got hired to open and manage a cafe at St. Stephen’s church in Richmond, VA. Then they added managing the weekly, year round Farmers Market to my responsibilities. All of this also meant my partner David had to start doing more with our historic window restoration business. I also had to put herbalism school on hold. And you know, we got married and also did all kinds of fun activities with our kids in the meantime.

 We opened the cafe in the week before Thanksgiving, and there was not much sleep. Over a month in, and many of the kinks have been worked out, I have great cafe staff, and we are open 7 days a week to the public. The cafe serves as a Village Green, and we have a smoothie of the same name. I was also able to create a really fun drink menu that works with the Church’s mission of being good environmental stewards and promoting healthy, local food and drink. I even incorporated some herbalist aspects into things like the Golden Milk Latte and our tea selection! 

I am hoping in 2018 to get back to regular haiku. It has just been a 70+ hour a week thing for a bit.

I am #grateful for the #harvest from #motherearth and for the time today to continue processing some of the plant bounty we were able to grow and #wildcraft this year. #herbalism #herbalist #theheathenhomestead #rva #beaverdam #goldenrod #rose #cleavers #chickweed #queenanneslace #wormwood #plantain here is just a little of what we grew and gathered
