“Fixed Earth Taurus encourages us to plant our crops, fertilize new shoots, and make it real. Our plans take form and grow roots. We’re gifted and challenged to honor Spirit imbued in the material world.” — Heather Roan Robbins
I’ve finally landed after what feels like a lifetime of traveling. The power of manifestation has brought my current coordinates to Starseed Sanctuary in the Northern Berkshires where I am living and working as the farm manager/groundskeeper/land steward. I live in a newly built tiny house on wheels also known as a Tumbleweed. There is a small wood stove, composting toilet, shower, electricity, propane cook stove, and a ladder leading to the loft where I sleep. What more could a young woman want?
My dear friend and co-land steward, Blake and I spend our days starting seedlings by the biodynamic calendar, chopping kindling, researching yurts, writing grants, ordering supplies, preparing mushroom logs, looking at tractors, spring cleaning, and discussing our dream of building a spiritual farming community together.
It’s all happening so fast, I often say to myself, “This is too good to be true.” Instead, I fill my heart with gratitude, take a deep breadth, and bask in how I feel deeply in alignment with why I’m here on Earth.
I am especially grateful to the Ananda family for inviting us to join their Sanctuary and home in hope of co-creating community and sustainable farming systems.
