Common Roots

Well, it’s official.  Papers have been signed.  Meetings have been met.  Facebook and Twitter accounts have been created.  Common Roots Farm has been birthed.

A few months ago, Steve began chatting with the owner of Steamers Coffeehouse about adding a small farm to the magic happening there.  It took all of about 5 words to get everyone on board.  Since then, it’s been a bit of a waiting game, making decisions, figuring out money.  Blah, blah – that’s the stuff Steve has been in charge of (mostly because if I were to enter the scene it could be an all-out Lauren take-over, and that’s just not helpful).  Now there are seeds to order, a fence to build, more tilling and ground-leveling, more plot planning…

Ultimately, Steve is now a genuine farmer with his very own farm.  I mean, he’s been a farmer for a while now, but managing someone else’s farm is different than caring for your own land — at least that’s what the farmers tell me.  It’s exciting whichever way you look at it.  And I’m crazy proud of him.
