to inform and inspire people across the country and around the world,

in a multitude of ways. Please join us!

Last Sunday eight of us
walked the outer loop of the Cossingham Road Farm trails. It was a
gem of a day; summer warm but not hot with just enough breeze to keep
us insect free. Blackberries were blossoming here and there and some
of the summer wildflowers, such as the blue eyed grass, made several
appearances. The woods were quiet, beautiful and peaceful; our many
conversations the only sounds. The last part of the trail was an easy
downhill along a pasture with a wonderful view of Moose, Smarts, Cube
and Moosilauke Mountains in front of us. As one of us said along the
way Ē I havenít hiked with a group in a long time. Itís nice.Ē
Sharing seems to add to the pleasure. Join us some Sunday.
