Yuko! She and her husband Dave moved onto the land in June. Yuko is an artist and currently runs her business – Honeyberry Studios – from their home.
|“Walking the land and noticing small and big changes the seasons bring has been a treat. As an artist, the farm has inspired my creative practice quite a bit. Even though we don’t have any livestock yet, I’ve been creating a dream animal farm in my art, and I’m sure there will be more! This adorable holiday duck in the picture is inspired by another Rooted NW member’s ducks .🦆 (Thanks, Carla!)”|

|December Permaculture Tip: “December is the time to order or purchase local bulbs, and to get a seed catalog so you can start planning for next year! As well, look up your local spring late frost date and mark it on the calendar. Then count backwards and mark when 8, 6, 4, and 2 weeks before the last frost date are on the same calendar. After you get your seeds, organize them by when they need planting, indoors or out.“ Lisa Miller – Rooted NW Explorer and Owner/Designer at Eco-RestoreEcological Consulting & Design LLCwww.eco-restore.com|
