People died for the

Eight hour work day. We work

Longer, on their graves.
Austerity means

Rich tightening the belts of

The poor. Such helpers.

New Year’s Resolution

I love lists, and I love resolutions. I often come up with overly ambitious lists for my New Year. 2017 has been a year of barely keeping my head above water, what with farming, Herbalism, two toddlers, construction business and getting to job of opening and running a café for a church. And then managing the Farmer’s Market was thrown in too. I have pahlenty (sic) to do.  I may not make a big list this year. It may be something as simple as ‘have 2 days off a week’. Not quite sure yet.

In the mean time, I have decided to give a 20% discount on coffees, teas, and smoothies to people who come into The Cafe @ St. Stephen’s and write down one of their New Year’s Resolutions for us to display. We want to celebrate, encourage, and inspire everyone who is trying to make positive changes in their lives.

So come by 6000 Grove Avenue and get a discount from now until the end of January. I want to see what goals Richmond has for the new year.

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
