    Alexander, if possible, could you bring an extra moringa sapling as I too would like to plant one in my own backyard.

      I have some teeny 4" tall moringas, so I'll bring those too.

      Dutch, I had the moringa and forgot to get them to you. Maybe next time?

    We can't afford the suggested donation but can bring a flat bed full of wood for the bon fires. I'm hoping Jonathan can take off of work Friday but if he can't, can we join Saturday-Sunday? We've been wanting to camp in this chilly weather. :)

    Hi Alexander. What time tomorrow do think things will get started? We're going to skip tonight. Too much of a time crunch, but we want to be there for as much as we can. Also, will we have access to potable water there? And my wife would like to know if there is a bathroom available:>

      Shaun, sorry that I didn't see this message in time. Terrible reception out at the site. Thank you for coming anyway. Sorry maya didn't arrive until you were leaving. The kids have so much fun playing when they are all together. Hope to see you all very soon!

    Wow, I'd like to thank everyone for coming out to this Skillful Living workshop! The moon was amazing, the campfire discussions were some of the best I've ever had! The workshop was fantastic. Our rocket mass heater is working! The food was great! Thank you to Tim Armstrong for his mushroom and blueberry workshop! I sincerely hope to see you all very soon!

    I've come down with a bad cold, and cannot come. I was really looking forward to it. Hopefully you will have another before I go back.

    January 17, 2014

    • Alexander Ojeda, J.

      I sincerely hope that you get well soon Lois. It's sad that you can't come. I understand entirely. It's tough getting a cold.

    Is it too late to RSVP for a family of four? We'd be camping if there's still room. Two adults, two kids (8 and 10). Was the suggested donation per person? Sorry for the late response but we'd love to learn and meet everyone.

    January 16, 2014

    • Alexander Ojeda, J.

      Still camping room! Kids are free. Actually everyone's free, but if you can swing it we actually run 100% on donations. THANKS for coming!

    How wonderful! Thank you, in advance for the Moringa Tree sapplings or seedlings that you will be bringing. If you have enough for the ones requesting them, and a few left over I would like to get more than one to share with my son and daughter-in-law and just in case I kill one.

    Do any of you know of any nice cob houses that are in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, or South Carolina that we could visit?

    January 13, 2014

  • Vivian M.

    My husband and I, and possibly one other, are trying to make arrangements to come to the cob building class. We are coming from Tallahassee Friday night and will spend the night at a local hotel so that we can be there early Saturday morning. Our plan is to be there for the day. We will be glad to participate in the work as we learn from the instruction.

    Will there be someone there who could tell us where we could buy some good quality Moringa Tree saplings?

    • Alexander Ojeda, J.

      It'll be great to meet you Vivan! I have one that I could sell you.
