Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day! Natasha (the other intern) and I rode bikes down to Redwood’s town to explore and get some ice cream at the infamous Felder’s. The ice cream was amazing, despite the opinion of the Knorr’s ice cream shop across the street. haha. We made our way down the road and came upon the Redwood Historical Society run by a very sweet and welcoming woman named Linda. She showed us around, filling us in on some fascinating details about Redwood and the families that reside in the area. One of the sweetest and thriftiest women I have ever met! It was a rare occasion for me to go into a business and feel welcomed while walking away with a handful of knowledge about a town’s history and its people-and to be welcomed back to help in a cleaning day! I really like this small town vibe (i’m gasping myself). Despite the downfalls that may come along with it, I admire small town qualities and the close knit communities. This is a huge change from the city I just left where I didn’t meet my neighbors until the day I was moving out. I like it here. It feels really natural to wake up early, tend to the chickens and head to the garden. This lifestyle may just be exactly what I need to get me out of the funk that I have been in.
Your moment of zen. #pigontherun

What a fun field trip with the seventh-grade class from Hammond Central School this morning! Students got to harvest veggies, feed pigs, and alpacas, pet a horse, visit with chickens and ducks, check out a tiny home, and even go on air on Better Radio. Such a treat to spend a couple of hours with such fun, bright and gentle humans.

The magic of @airbnb + @betterfarm : folks representing five countries sitting around in a Redwood commune's library, playing @the_everlybrothers on piano and telling stories. #reallife
Fair warning: If you stop at the farm in September, you will be forced to leave with mulch-garden grown, organic -- and occasionally enormous -- squash.
New salt block! #happyhorse

"Were we playing in the burdocks? What on earth would give you that idea?" Said neigh-one.
