The past week, we have been hard at work trying to finish designing a web template and moving the site’s content. There’s still a bit of work to do, even so, we are hoping to launch the improved and expanded site either this week or next. The new site will be easier to navigate, include more reading content, a page to go to see what’s new, an interactive page which will include a virtual tour and downloads. Once launched, we will be adding more photos to the photo gallery and even more content to the site. We are pretty excited so, stay tuned!
This Tuesday (Feb 14th), look for an article about PTF in the March/April issue ofNatural Home & Garden
Update: no article? Seems there is no article in this issue of NH&G. First, we were told the article would appear in the Nov/Dec ’05 issue but it was then changed to the March/April ’06 issue… and now NO article? Someone there has to get their facts straight. *Sigh* Sorry about the confusion, I will get to the bottom of the matter and try to get some straight answers!
UPDATE: Just got word, the article is going to be in the MAY/JUNE issue. Sorry folks! Hope they are certain this time.
Now, back to working on the new site.
Going through our trunk of old photos, I found more photos of the early homestead in New Zealand (where I was born). The first picture shows, Jules and his first garden and the other, a view of the homestead in the valley and in the shadow of majestic Mt. Cook.
” Convinced that there must be a better society and more humane way of life somewhere, he traveled extensively through Europe as he considered the future course for his life. In 1973 he emigrated to New Zealand, believing that an isolated, egalitarian society could assist him and his family in living a more integrated, meaningful life.
In a “backwards” region on the rural South Island of New Zealand, Jules began homesteading. He became a beekeeper, grew his own food, kept chickens, ducks and goats, collected rain water for his family’s water supply, lived without most modern conveniences and embarked on the path towards self-sufficiency.”
