Our first day on Orcas Island brought much joy. The Sustainability Fair alongside the Farmers’ Market brought out a lot of people. I hadn’t seen many of my Orcas friends for months or years, and even folks I knew from off island were sipping tea.
Edna and I arrived on Orcas Island just the night before on a mission to get settled into a shop space here called Stem. It’s a warehouse where my friend Matthew builds these small movable structured called Pods. It also has ended up turning into a community shop space where Edna and I will be spending an undetermined amount of time remodeling the Edna’s interior and installing a solar panel, water and plumbing, a woodstove, etc. This should be fun!
