This morning we said goodbye to Matt Bailey, a dear friend and member of the farmily, as he heads back to California to pursue his music and start a garden. We spent his last morning planting a kumquat tree – the finishing touch for our permaculture design project. Matt has been an incredible asset to the farm in his three months here. He has been an inspiring hard worker since his first day and has brought energy, adventure, and humor to the community. He is always ready to get a bonfire going or pull out his guitar. He will be greatly missed and we wish the best to him as he continues to follow his passions.
