So much has happened…. here’s a glimpse!
We began an internship program to complement our existing work exchange program in the summer of ’07. That first summer the enrollment wasn’t sufficient to run a full program, but we had a group of folks arrive at the same time anyway as work exchangers. This created a special container which was enjoyed by all. Here’s them in action!
Since then our internship program has grown and blossomed. We now run three programs a year. At the end of each program the group selects a design project and gets a chance at their own creation. This year the winter interns decided to build upon what the fall program began.
Socially, we have been very busy as well. We had some trial members who chose not to join as the trial period is for us all to see whether there is a good fit or not.
We also had two births! Aniko gave birth to Kai’ea in Nov. ’07 and Tracy gave birth to Ai’ala in May ’08.
