DAV visits Ampersand!

completely off the grid learning center located an hour away from Santa Fe, New Mexico!

Yesterday was Ampersand’s open house.  We were able to see the great work the interns had been doing for the past two months including the adjustment to self reliant lifestyles.  Its amazing to know that they small community uses only 400 watts of solar energy!!  Everything else in use worked harmoniously with the Earthly rhythms.

After the tour and potluck, there was a lovely discussion  about humanure (human manure) and community permaculture.  Its great to be able to experience about community integration  of permaculture concepts while seeing hands on work behind it!  Great job Ampersand, I hope to see you again!!
