Dracula made friends with a caterpillar!! We told him that he too will become a butterfly some day. He was pleased.

Song of the Builders by Mary Oliver
On a summer morning
I sat down
on a hillside
to think about God -
a worthy pastime.
Near me, I saw
a single cricket;
it was moving the grains of the hillside
this way and that way.
How great was its energy,
how humble its effort.
Let us hope
it will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe.
WE HAVE SIX DAYS LEFT TO REACH OUR KICKSTARTER GOAL! WE ARE AT 43% WITH A STRONG MOMENTUM. PLEASE PASS THE INFORMATION ALONG TO ANYONE YOU CAN THINK OF! WE REALLY BELIEVE IN THIS PROJECT AND WANT IT TO HAPPEN FOR THE COMMUNITY. EVERY DOLLAR HELPS!
WE LOVE YOU!
Last Saturday we set up a little booth at Smorgasburg to pass out free seeds and information about design.plot. Our lead farmer Heather was in town from CT and spent the day chatting with us! Thanks to everyone who came by! Look for us at the Williamsburg farmers market this Saturday. Stop by and say hello!
My work is loving the world.
Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird—
equal seekers of sweetness.
Here the quickening yeast there the blue plums.
Here the clam deep in the speckled sand.
Are my boots old? Is my coat torn?
Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me
keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work,
which is mostly standing still and learning to be
The phoebe, the delphinium.
The sheep in the pasture, and the pasture.
Which is mostly rejoicing, since all the ingredients are here,
our friends took a shower in the rain outside our studio and we made them a movie
We visited the eagle street rooftop farm in Greenpoint this past Sunday. It was our first visit and it was AMAZING! We ended up staying for the beekeeping workshop which was pretty inspiring. It sort of got our wheels turning... think we may become beekeepers in the near future!
Definitely go check the farm out if you get a chance. They have open days and workshops most Sundays!
Buzz off. I especially like the hats that beekeepers wear. We are going to start researching a little more.
Our friend Cecilia is starting an amazing jewelry line that we are completely in love with! She has set up a kickstarter project to help cover the expense of the equipment necessary to produce the collection and we all need to help make it happen! You are essentially pre-ordering her rad jewels at wholesale prices.... she is going to blow up so you better get them while you can!
