Hello readers! As I click-clack away our home is being serenaded by a bee swarm that has chosen a nearby branch to rest on just beside our east window. The hive has outgrown the home our neighbors made for them, and our beekeeping friends are now in scramble mode. It is a sight (and a […]

Eco-Audit

Eco-Audit

“So, what are you doing here?” I asked. “Eatin’ hog,” he replies. Yes folks, those words are just a few of the gems that come from the esteemed wit of Doctor Joshua Lockyer, Ph.D. of Arkansas Tech University, Dancing Rabbit Board member, and all around cool guy. Doc Lock is here again visiting the village […]

Uncommon

Uncommon

Here I sit, clicky clacking away at this infernal alphabet machine, my child, slowly but assuredly growing to become a six-year-old, ensconced in our family sleeping bag. The three of us lie on the floor, Althea, myself (Howdy, I’m Ben), and what seems to be my other child: a quickly developing orphaned Muscovy duck, named […]

Experiencing Life by Learning

Experiencing Life by Learning

Hi friends! This is Alline writing from Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. First, of course, I am compelled to discuss the weather. The big news is that the sun finally came out! Great rejoicing was heard throughout the land. The garden beds previously despaired over have now dried out. Some tomato plants survived, although many did not. […]

Missouri Amazon

Missouri Amazon

Hello everyone, from Drenching Rabbit! While it seems like there was probably a time when northeast Missouri was not like the Amazon, that is simply a distant memory right now. We have been getting wet on the regular with little chance of reprieve in sight. Some of the plants are happy, though not always the […]

Hot & Stormy

Hot & Stormy

Phew! Hot and stormy, wet and muggy, tons going on– must be summertime at DR! Tereza here with the news of the week that was, or at least what I can recall of it from my memory, word from community mates, and the info on my calendar… Three tri-community folk had birthday events this week. […]

Growing

Growing

While the June-bearing strawberries are starting to taper off now, berry season has just begun. Raspberries and mulberries have been full-on in the past week, and this morning Sara brought in our first major harvest of black raspberries. Not having brought a bowl to the garden they were cradled in the trough of a very large and healthy […]

Babies Everywhere

Babies Everywhere

Babies, babies everywhere! Every time I step outside, I see baby bunnies, adorable little balls of fluff, munching on the weeds around our yard. Thankfully they can’t get into our garden, protected by a good rabbit-proof fence, and the garden keeps on producing lettuce and tender, ripe strawberries by the bowlful every day. This is […]

Weather Obsession

Weather Obsession

Greetings from Dancing Rabbit, where the men are adept with scythes and tractors, the women laugh often, and the children run loose like wild and happy wildebeests. Alline here, with the news of the week… or in some cases, from the past. This morning over coffee Ben reminded us that two years ago we had […]

When Old is Better 

When Old is Better 

by Nik for Dancing Rabbit “What do we say to power tools?” “NO!” The crowd roared in response. A man stood on a wooden stage in the middle of a crowded 10-bent timber frame barn; he held a broad ax aloft, like a mustachioed viking. Roy Underhill, long-time host of PBS’s The Woodwright’s Shop, which […]
