Seeds, Spirits, and Open Space Technology: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Seeds, Spirits, and Open Space Technology: A Dancing Rabbit Update

  It is often said that the first step toward a solution or significant change is admitting that you have a problem. When hints of spring start interrupting February's winter cold, I realize that I have a problem. A gardening problem. Collating the results of hours spent with seed catalogs, I realize there is absolutely no way to fit everything into my garden. Clearly this is a problem. Cob here, setting aside my internal dilemma over which varieties of what delicious fresh fruit or vegetable to let go of, to instead bring you up to date on the happenings from…read more >
Starting a New Chapter: My Dancing Rabbit Visit

Starting a New Chapter: My Dancing Rabbit Visit

by Ryan Morris It has been eight months since my Dancing Rabbit (DR) visitor session, and every step since then has been a step back toward DR. I still remember walking up the main path into the village and seeing Javi on the swing in front of the common house, with a big smile on his face. That day was spent meeting other visitors and the few Rabbits who had time in their hectic summer schedules to mingle with the new crop of visitors. Life in intentional community is busy. No, you don’t need a TV, as there is always…read more >
Food, Firewood, and Friendship: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Food, Firewood, and Friendship: A Dancing Rabbit Update

One of the pleasures of life for me here at Dancing Rabbit is that we have long focused on preserving the fruits (and leaves, etc.) of our seasonal harvests for the leaner times of year. Despite the ever-miraculous ability of birds and mammals to eke out a living through the cold months here in the mid-latitudes and above, I look out the window these days and know I would not be eating much if I had to rely on what was readily available. Ted here to bring you this week's news from northeast Missouri at the tail end of January.…read more >
Bittersweet Winter: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Bittersweet Winter: A Dancing Rabbit Update

I don't think I've ever checked thermometers so religiously in my life. As a native Coloradoan I'm no stranger to the cold and snow, but this is my first winter at Dancing Rabbit and staying warm is a little more complicated than cranking up the thermostat. This is Cameron, one of the newest residents here, I just arrived at the beginning of December. I'm not sure I would recommend moving here in the winter, but it's been a remarkably soft landing for me. I'm living in a cozy strawbale house with an attached greenhouse and beautiful interior woodwork. My neighbor…read more >

Winding Down; Still Busy: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Things are winding down around here. We’re lighting fires indoors, pulling out puzzles and needlepoint projects, and saying goodbye to the last visitors of the season. But also, this has been a busy week, as it usually is in the village. Christina here, writing from frosty NeMo, where things are changing but they’re also sort of the same as always. There have been some lasts this week. The goat co-op decided to end the evening goat milking, as the does have not been giving out much milk. The village finished out the last visitor session of the season, Saturday was…read more >

Eclipse Adventures (Pt. 2): A Dancing Rabbit Update

Eclipse Adventures (Pt. 2): A Dancing Rabbit Update

I'm sitting outdoors just under the tall overhang outside our kitchen's west door. Thunder rumbles in the west, suggesting perhaps a third round of thunderstorms for the day. Tall, rangy sunflowers in bloom and the surrounding oak trees all drip quietly with the remainder of the most recent deluge. Lest I forget, my rooster Rodrigo just came to stand five feet away in the chicken yard and start crowing the presence of his flock just to one side. Boy, can he project. Ted here with this week's news from Dancing Rabbit. I'm still landing back at home here, having just…read more >
