Another blog update has us at a new location and exploring yet another way of creating a holistic health center and permaculture community here in the Shire. But, more about that in a minute…
First, to update, it’s been a busy year for Saba Cooperative. We spent most of the spring and early summer preparing the domes in Henniker to be ready for new residents and a new style of community living.
By July the structures and grounds were ready. But, another unexpected opportunity led us off yet again. The domes became the “FreeDomes,” now managed by our friends at the Quill, and we were off to Union for yet another project.
The structures of the new project were in rough shape and needed a lot of TLC, but we’re making progress.
The property is quite unique. We’re bordered by a river, a waterfall, a cemetery, an intersection, a railroad, a historic park, an olde blacksmith shoppe, and a senior bingo hall/ community resource center. Where else can you find all these things in one place? We just couldn’t pass it up!
There is still a lot of work to do both inside and out, but before long we’ll be growing food not lawns and providing holistic therapy for people struggling with dependence. We’ve already met several of the neighbors and they’re almost as excited about our plans as we are! Some have even have been so kind as to donate some plants for our gardens!
We look forward to having guests and visitors to Another Way to see our new project and share in our dream.
