HOPE in Her Eyes

We raised around $17,000 for marginalized women. The whole day was absolutely intense, from laughing to crying, from throwing gloves on and getting down and dirty to help the caterer, to taking the stage and letting my heart spill into words in front of a sold out crowd, there are no more words to say.

So the builders knew that this would have to be replaced about 300 years from then and built the wood in such a way that it would be easy to extract and replace. Then they took things a step further. They planted an oak tree forest surrounding the building, that would grow for 300 years, mature, and then the wood that was needed was right on site.

Do you see the sustainability in that?

Wildcrafting is thinking 300 years out."
