“There is a lot going on in the world at the moment.  You can see the uncertainty it has created in the stock market and in the sudden unexpected popularity of toilet paper.  Both are examples of how we respond in a crisis; we try to reduce uncertainty by going to cash or making sure we don’t run out of needed household supplies.  But I am also seeing people reach out to one another.  Nurturing is another way we respond to crisis.  In my community, I see wineries reaching out to restaurants,  inns reaching out to wineries, all of us reaching out to each other in support.  I hope we’ll do more of that in the weeks to come as we try to get a handle on this virus.  In Biodynamics, we think of a farm as a totality, an interrelated system.  Our communities are like that too. Call a friend, buy someone a cup of coffee, wash your hands, and let’s all try to take care of one another.” Bill Sweat, Proprietor
