Hi Jane! I understand about the renewal effects of solitude! Today was my day for a few hours, and I'm planning on tomorrow some to.
I would love to have your help working in the garden. Let me know your phone/email and we can figure out a time to match schedules. Usually weekday afternoons & evenings work best for me.
Hi Jane! We missed you for the 'Walking Gaia's Gardens' event! I hope all is well, and that the shift in the carpool location by the site owner at the last minute didn't cause you to not connect with us! Lets stay in contact and find time to work together in a garden (come enjoy the one I care for too!).
