Know what’s been on my heart this week? Community.
I’ve always been one to try and do EVERYTHING myself. (Just ask my parents and husband😂) I don’t need no sort of help. Laugh out loud. Farming just doesn’t have room for that nonsense.
This Winter, I decided that I was to just go for this dream, I wasn’t going to hold back. I decided to quadruple my lavender plant count (gulp). The math on that does not add up one person’s worth of work, oddly enough. 😂
So last month, I put out a call for local folks to help me plant 550 new lavender plants out here on the farm. I offered a workshop and a plant to take home in exchange. I had hoped a few people might show interest. But let me tell you...I can’t believe the outpouring of folks who have signed up❤️ Stay tuned for pics this weekend, I cannot wait!
We can’t achieve our dreams alone friends, we NEED community. Online, local, family, friends, employees. Don’t be afraid to just ask. You’ll be surprised with the number of folks who are just waiting in the wings to lift you up. Including me❤️
