Thanks everyone for your patience over the last month or so. Things have been very busy which is great, but my online correspondence has been put on the back-burner for the time being. Regardless, I am back to provide a little briefing on the past month or so on what Prairie Sage has been up to...
The month of September started off with a bang as we conducted the first permaculture tour of the Calgary area (I will provide a more detailed write-up on the day’s events with photos very soon). Many thanks again to all who helped to make the day such a success. Due to popular demand, it appears we will be providing many more similar tours beginning next spring. Looking forward to it!
Immediately following the tour, I had been contracted to design a self-watering landscape and construct it before the third weekend of September. Thanks to the extended summer weather, the landscape was completed with success.
Also near the beginning of the month, the Alberta-wide magazine Guided Synergy published a feature article I had written on the subject of Permaculture and relationships. My hopes were to introduce readers to this still relatively little-known discipline. The article can be found on page 21 by clicking HERE
Now the not so good story…Near the middle of September, Prairie Sage’s Twitter account had been compromised , sending spams to many of my followers. After some virus scanning and quarantining, and a couple of password changes, things started rolling along just fine once again. Whew! Thanks to my Twitter followers for sticking with me and your understanding during the fiasco!
Finally, the last portion of the month saw another client contract Prairie Sage with an “emergency” backyard design, in the hopes that deck construction can begin and be completed before the ground freezes. We have succeeded in completing the initial design-rendering phase, and the deck construction is on schedule. The project as a whole, however, looks like it will continue well into next summer.
The next few months should see me back in online form more frequently. Some workshops are in order (I know many of you have been asking) and I will provide the info as soon as we can set dates and venues. While I may be still doing some more designs, I will also be putting together the tours and other events for an exciting year to come!
