Hello dear friends,
Spring is upon us here at Mountain Lamp. This morning, there were so many new birds singing. At night the owls are thrumming for mates, and in the early morning, the woodpeckers are finding loud surfaces (like the metal roofs here) to make their presence known through the whole valley. We just ordered our garden seeds. On March 7th, we will have a work day for pruning the orchard and a bonfire with s’mores. We hope you can join us.
Mountain Lamp is looking to fill some positions. Click here for more information.
