It’s been a while since the last blog post, but East Wind has been thriving. We had a lovely Ozark summer. The days were hot and humid and the nights warm and friendly. The ticks, mosquitos, and chiggers kept us itchy as usual. Our beautiful creek helped us beat the heat though.
Our agricultural programs continued to flourish, with Ranch and Garden producing a lot of food for us.
We had a lovely Fall Equinox community party. There was food and drinks, music and dancing, and a great big bonfire.
As part of the Federation of Egalitarian Communities (FEC), East Wind trades labor with other FEC communities, and were very happy to host five communards from our sister community, Twin Oaks. The were a big help around the farm, and were able to join us for our Equinox party!
Two of our beloved cos, Airik and Shannell, got married here in the middle of October. They had a lovely ceremony down at their personal shelter, Rivendell. Congratulations you guys!
Our Building Maintenance team rebuilt and expanded one of Annares’ stairways, adding some nice decks to it.
Airik honcho’d a big expansion to our bike shed.
