Workshops, Visitors, and Tractors: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Greetings, friends! It feels good to be writing again to y'all after so long. Katherine here, with a few musings for your reading pleasure. This week has seen a lot of high energy around the village with workshops, visitors, and tractors! After a successful Milkweed Mercantile Natural Building workshop last week, followed by the CSCC Natural Building workshop (both of which I cooked for), we launched immediately into the second visitor program of the season and a yoga retreat (for which I am also cooking). With all these people in town, I can tell you that mounds of kale and…read more >

An Amazing Gift: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Good day, Rabbit friends! Katherine here, feverishly writing to you with my cup-o-coffee (thank you, local Zimmerman’s grocery store) and adrenaline-filled fingers. I don’t actually know if I “needed” the coffee this morning as I start yet another busy day here in the village and feel like I could get by on my own energetic anticipation. I had been travelling for the past few weeks and have now dropped back into the thick of it with pure style. The meetings, the garden, the paid work; all still here for me to pick back up! My trip out west was wonderful,…read more >

Why So Happy?
 A Dancing Rabbit Update

Good day, Rabbit friends! The sun is now hiding behind the clouds giving a much needed respite from the August “heat dome” in Missouri, and the village is still dripping from this early morning’s thunderstorms.

Katherine here this week, to give you the goings-on and appreciations from one Happy Rabbit’s perspective. Why am I so gosh-darn happy? Well, here’s only a few of the reasons: As I write this, I am sitting in the Great Room of the Common House eating a…read more >

Common Sense and Listening: A Dancing Rabbit Update

"Success is more a function of consistent common sense than of genius." — An Wang, Boston Magazine, 1986 Everyday life at Dancing Rabbit seems reminiscent of these words. Katherine here this week, giving you less of a rundown of happenings here and more of a personal editorial on the state of common sense. When I look at the world and see rapidly depleted resources, my mind says, “Use less water, make less waste, all around, just plain less.” When I look at the world and see war after war tearing apart nations and families, when I see that it is the…read more >

Sneaky for a Good Cause: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Brrr! The temperature has dropped again and ol’ Jack Frost is nipping at my rapidly typing fingertips. I have just lit the first fire of the day in my house, which has yet to take hold and warm the tiny space. Luckily my furry heater Henry is cozying up under the covers and keeping our paws warm during a mid-day dog nap. Howdy folks, Katherine here to give you the local weather report and then some in this week’s article. The “ick“ has been making the rounds in the community passing from child to parent to friend in the form…read more >
