Today, I visited Maria at her placement site, Earthdance Farms, Ferguson, Missouri. For mid-December, it was absolutely appropriate weather. Cold! The sky clouded over while we walked the furrows of plowed earth and dreamed of summer to come. So much hope is buried in that land, and it grows whether the plants are visible or not. Fortunately, as you can see, the plants grow year round. And the chickens cluck, and the earth dances. What a blessing to have a partnership in this farm to table operation!
