I know that I’ve been “missing in action” lately as far as posting articles, responding to comments, and managing the other activities around here and at the Gardening Secrets Newsletter, but it hasn’t been without good reason.
You see I just returned from a second adventure at the Virgin Islands Sustainable Farm Institute. Yes, that’s the same organic farm that I visited and described earlier this year; so that should give you a good indication of how much I enjoy this particular island getaway!
Lots of Organic Gardening Fun under the Sun
On this most recent trip, I had a great time, attended a Permaculture Design Certification Course, soaked up some sunshine, and took lots of pictures of organic vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and the tropical countryside. I also sampled a few new exotic fruits and took in sights that I missed on my previous visit.
It was nice to recharge my internal batteries before the winter sets in here in Pennsylvania. St. Croix was warm and pleasant despite the rainy season that delivered a little rain almost every night.
Shout Outs to Everyone at VISFI
Thanks to all my friends at the Virgin Islands Sustainable Farm Institute for the usual hospitality; to Ben, Dyami, and Ethan for teaching the Permaculture Design Course; and to all the new friends that I made as we worked and studied around the farm, and played on the beaches and around town.
There will be more to share but first I have to get caught up on the email, commenting, and the November issue of the Gardening Secrets Newsletter. So have a great Thanksgiving holiday and enjoy a few of the hundreds of photos that were taken on the Island of St. Croix to whet your appetite until I can describe more of what I saw and did during my visit.
