Subject: Blossom's Farms need some help! Go Fund Me link

Delmar had a heart attack
On the evening of 7/10 shortly after coming home from work Delmar suffered a serious heart attack. Carin did CPR until the Paramedics arrived to take him to the hospital. For a time the doctors had to stimulate his heart to keep it pumping. He spent several days in the ICU hooked up and sedated. He has the tubes out now and seems to be coming along well. He is due to return home soon to begin his convalesce with Carin as his caregiver.
Carin and Delmar need help to replace lost income and deal with what hospital and home care bills they can. As I'm sure you know multiple days in the hospital ICU can run up a very serious bill.
Please help ease the stress of this sudden setback, maintain the momentum of Blossom's Farm, and let Carin and Delmar know that you and the community around them care.

See the good work they do here: Blossom's Farm

attention, admins...the website isn’t secure. If you open it via latest Firefox, it will tell you exactly what the problem is...it seems to be related to password safety, but I am not sure.

I was driving between St Helena and Davis the other day and noticed acres and acres of low shade houses near your place. What goes on over there?

WOW! Big opportunity here, eh? Love the answers I am seeing, the input is great! From Jeff's practical take to Patrick's thinking from the heart... Whatever your circumstances, it sounds like there is plenty of room to work any kind of plan in; think of things possible for the 'big' picture and you can plan, expand, finding out the best approach as you go. Jerry may have the permaculture approach and, if so, will help to define your goals. Many many questions will factor in re: what grows in Lucerne Valley? Are there 'traditional' models to explore? How long have you been there and what do you think you'd like? You know, some people would look at the same parcel and see a storage facility as a way to build a future! Others would consider an equestrian center, an orchard, nursery, turf farm, organic crops, flowers.. The list goes on and on. One suggestion (only MY personal choice) and there are
