      Looks good to me! I think this is something we will figure out together. In an age of social media, what is the potential value to you of a tool like this?

      I think this sort of thing was really important for me in first several years as a serious, professional level productive gardener. I used to use GrowVeg.

      Now, I have a well developed rotation and tend to use a somewhat more instinctive approach to fill it out. I have a well developed internal database of what I’m planting and where each year, and an idea of what the more self organized extensive gardens will contribute, too.

      I do have a Lillie House master plant list, but I don’t consult it too often these days. I expect each year we’ll have about 230-260 species or so in the garden.

      Water movement through soil. Some of these aren’t what you’d expect! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ego2FkuQwxc

      Remember, all Zoom links are now the same for all classes.

      Well, thank you for posting this. I’m interested in hearing more about My first thought is to figure out what kind of coop it is going to be, a worker coop or a consumer coop.

      As a consumer coop, you would organize with families and then pool resources, including money to hire some pro labor to make it all work. This would give parents a little more say in the vision of the daycare, and control over the organization, so it doesn’t just collapse if a provider moves, gets sick or has some other obligation. This is similar to what Mark lakeman’s neighborhood did with their neighborhood composting daycare program.

      Or, you could figure out what skills are necessary to give a really great daycare, then find people to do that and form a worker cooperative with them to start a daycare.

      Just thinking out loud in case that helps your visioning process.🤷‍♂️ I have been involved in a few arts focused day care and after school programs when I was younger, so I might have more thoughts about how it could be structured than I consciously realize. 🤣 we can chat about it when we Zoom.

      So far it hasn’t been bad. I agree it is preferable for an organization to not be dependent upon Facebook, especially any kind of regenerative organization. So thanks for coming here!

      Hi! Excited to see your message! Yes, I love winter foraging, especially overwinter ephemeral! I actually did a post and video about it a while back!
