  • Boxing Day 7pm central: reading gnome story on Instagram Live
  • Poem I was trying to say:
I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December.

A magical thing

And sweet to remember.

“We are nearer to Spring 

Than we were in September,” 

I heard a bird sing 

In the dark of December. 

~Oliver Herford

  • Long Way Homestead’ Canadian Wool Advocacy – “Currently in Canada there is no data regarding the small to medium scale wool industry. The only national statistics in Canada reference the wool that is collected and purchased by the Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers (CCWG) there are no statistics or data to date, that account for the wool grown, processed and sold by farmers and ranchers focusing on wool. 

    This research project aims to collect and analyze that data and produce information. This data can then be used regionally and nationally to promote and advocate for increased infrastructure, marketing, and support for rural communities and farmers/ranchers. This information can be used by fibreshed organizations and individuals, and will be available without charge in the form of reports and infographics.”
