Blue tarps and rain

October 4th, 2010

OK, here is an update of what’s been going on at Flora Bora. We tried our darnest to have every thing complete by now but we are still under construction, a combination of to much rain and a learning curve, has taken its toll on our time lines. Looking back at our mammoth to do lists set earlier in the season I am pleased with all the pink checks we now have. Both yurts are up and we couldn’t be happier with these beautiful structures!

Here are a few pictures of the summer.

Things are happening...

Great summer for the raspberries.

Hello Hello!! Welcome to Flora Bora’s first blog

April 1st, 2010

Every day for the last eight years we have been dreaming about Flora Bora.  Although dreaming is delightful, the impatience of not being able to live your dreams now, can be frustrating at times. Now in hindsight I do see everything does have a season and the things that made us feel like we were spinning our wheels were in fact very positive and rich learning experiences. So needless to say it is a wonderful feeling to be finally taking the plunge and to be working on our little forest lodging. We are excited to be able to share our love of nature, this area, healthy living, growing food and our attempt to be more self-reliant.

So we hope you check back soon and get the latest updates on what’s shaking at our “forest farm”.
