Summer flew by at the Laytonville Ecovillage and there was little time for website updates and social media! Work-traders made substantial improvements to the land, particularly in the garden and solar shower. All but one of our baby chicks matured into healthy laying hens and we’re gathering 8–12 eggs a day. New tenants have moved onto the land and we are now six adults and four children. Our newest member, “kitty,” is a stray that has adopted the Laytonville Ecovillage as her new home.
September saw an early rain and while Fall has been dry there are mushrooms popping up everywhere. The roundpole workshop allowed us to finish the structure protecting the cob oven and bench (see pics).
