Many if not most of us are raised in a culture that promotes a notion that there is a lack of resources, competition, winners and losers, not enough for everyone. That “I better get mine” and “Survival of the Fittest.” Well, many of us believe that the next stage of our collective evolution has to do with interdependence, gratitude and the understanding that we DO in fact live in abundance. We still live in the Garden of Eden and the shift has to do largely with our own powers of perception. Science and Spirituality can and do merge in many ways to bring a holistic approach to live on Earth. Creating a community that thrives on interaction, effective communication, conflict resolution, healthy lifestyles and artistic creation is our goal here at Earthen Heart.
I have not been very good at documenting the incoming visitors thus far to Earthen Heart but I would very much like to thank Liv, Rachel, and now Emma for their help recently with all things Earthen Heart. There is an effort now to create a community land trust and partner with regional nonprofit organizations so that ownership of this land and the mission can be shared with others, especially the younger generation.
For now we focus on weeding, picking and processing blueberries, harvesting herbs and making tinctures and other matters related to food. Everything seems to be coming on a bit early this season and the blueberries will be full force within a week of two. We have already picked enough to fill almost one entire freezer, make blueberry leather and dried berries. Juice and wine are yet to come. Currently we are making blueberry kale leather. We shall see how that turns out in the morning!
