A new baby boy! In May, Elizabeth and Coleman Watts-De Sa gave birth to Calum, making him the youngest community member on campus. ‘Calum’ is an Irish name meaning ‘Little Dove’, which is ironic because Elizabeth says he is quite big and heavy. He loves songs and funny noises. He and Althea are very sweet together!
The Woolman Farm is becoming more and more of an active “heart” of campus with our two main goals coming to fruition; growing a large of amount of the produce for all the people who live or visit here to enjoy, and becoming an educational center. We are also making some headway on a third goal of generating income from produce, herbs and seeds that we don’t have immediate use for on campus.
This morning as Doug and I sat with our tea (me) and coffee (Doug) in our living room, a cow strolled into our front yard. Amelia was out again. She roamed a bit, looked like she might take a nibble of hose that was curled on the ground (Doug was frowning on that endeavor) and then strolled on. The beginning of another summer day at Woolman...with summer already feeling like it is drawing to a close.
The flyer posted below was created by Willow Shaughnessey, Woolman Semester student from Fall 2009 as part of her Global Issues' Youth as Peacebuilder project. For the semester long assignment, Willow analayzed the conflict of Transgender Hate Crimes, hoping to come to an understand of the root causes of this worldwide problem. As her case study, she looked deeply into the murder of Lateisha Green, a woman who was killed in 2008.
