Went to a local farm last weekend. It was raining, so we held our yoga class in the barn. How is this related to phalloplasty? Got sacked for the first time… and by a goat! Fun!
But on a serious note, I am able to hold my own body weight on my right arm again. I still shake a bit when holding positions for long, but it doesn’t hurt. And my flexability is awesome. I’m so pleased with how far I’ve come.
Invest in lavender futures, help farm, reap redolent rewards.
A Massachusetts family plans to save their once-flourishing farm, struggling after years of setbacks, with lavender fields and beehives.
The Farm at Summitwynds has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the expansion of current lavender plots and the addition of beehives. Sales of lavender and honey products will return the farm to profitability, and by diversifying the revenue stream, foster sustainability.
In return for your pledges on Kickstarter, farm owner Amy Parker is offering thanks in the form of unique farm experiences (including goat yoga) and artisanal products. That’s a pretty sweet deal.
Permaculture job postings be like: ‘come, pay your own travel, and do the work for our organic yoga farm that we don’t want to do: we’ll pay you in good vibes and half-baked pseudo-mystical life philosophy. We have no accreditation.’
Life on the Farm with the Designer @ambikaboutique
For more photos and videos of Ambika’s sheep, rabbits and goats plus the occasional design made from their wool, follow @ambikaboutique.
Ambika Conroy (@ambikaboutique) makes accessories and swimwear but on Instagram she’s far more likely to share moments from life on her farm. “I think the simple daily happenings are what you take with you when you die,” she says. "I also hope that my pictures inspire people to want to live and create more consciously and sustainably.”
Many of Ambika’s pieces are made from fibers such as angora that she sources from the farm. There, she and her partner Josh have built a community, inviting guests to stay in their farm, attend yoga classes, visit the animals or even record an album at their studio. “There is so much to learn from animals and nature,” she says. “Keeping my hands busy keeps my mind still and my body strong.”
