Not sure yet what I'll be posting on here but here's an #Introduction -
I'm sara or SK, I'm 25, I have 2 cats and a bunch of houseplants. Currently living in Chicago, IL but planning on moving to Maine soon to start the forest garden of my dreams. I followed @makegodgayagain over here from instagram and I'm excited to spend time on a non-zucced platform with y'all.
I guess I’m just fancy for wanting indoor plumbing 👸
Suddenly I have a much more urgent interest in learning about wells and septic tanks etc.
Like could we add on a bathroom before the winter 😬
Do yourself a favor and watch this video about the history of left-wing politics contextualized with the influence from north american native people, made by a native youtuber:
Part of the reason I explore uses for invasive plants is because it helps keep me from falling into despair at the seemingly impossible amount of work ahead.
Invasive plants are so prolific. There are areas so completely covered with ivy, almost nothing else grows. And it just keeps spreading.
At times all of this work feels rather futile.
Its especially true because I know there's no end point for this project. There will almost certainly never be a state where all of the invasives are gone and we don't ever have to worry about them again. If I stopped all of my work would be undone in just a few years and the areas I haven't worked on will continue to spread.
Exploring ways to use invasive plants allows me to feel not only anger, sadness and exhaustion of seeing invasive plants but also the joy and gifts they offer. And somehow that seems to keep me going.
