At the same time, governments have expanded their…Continue

There's a pole barn on craiglist (for FREE) that might suit our tire storage needs at the artery. Anyone interested in dismantling and reconstructing this in late October? Perhaps we invest our 5k grant into a constructive community building opportunity? This may be an alternative to the steel box.
What if the artery set + met the standard of the Living Building Challenge? It defines the most… Continue

Fill up 3 or 4 5 gallon buckets of warm water. Put DAWN soap…
