Emi, have a great perma-blitz, and maybe catch you at the end.

We've just had our initial 'viewing' of the site, and we're very excited! Please bring a shovel or hoe if you have one, a huge smile and maybe a dish to share for a potluck following an awesome work session!

We had a couple dozen people at the Kits Village blitz a couple weeks ago and it was a whole lot of fun and really educational, and we transformed a front yard into a food forest. Almost 1/2 the participants were from Kits and 4 new people joined our village and have been very active.

VV's Steering Committee is doing some visioning that afternoon 'till 5:30, so I'm sad to have to miss this, but will try to stop by near the end to see how it went. (Some people ended up staying longer at ours-- maybe at yours too?)
