Mars is coming close to Earth. Hold on.

Rusty Mon says,

On Aug. 26, 2003, when Mars was closer to Earth than it had been in many millenia, Mars was just a star-like point of light in the night sky. Mars will make another close approach to Earth Jan. 29, 2010, and will be only 61.7 million miles from Earth, closer than it will be again until March 2014. Peaking at magnitude -1.3, Mars will outshine all stars and other planets except Sirius and Jupiter.on Sunday

Water Woman Project Continues – November 7-8

The Water Woman Project continues!
November 7 & 8
Joshua Tree Lake Campground

Cobbing, Drumming, Permaculture & Community Building

People came from far and wide to share the essential information and skills for living in harmony with Nature at the Water Woman Festival last month–AND a lot of people wanted to know when we were going to do it again, so we’ve set a date. Come get muddy! We’ll be finishing (and using) the rocket stove BBQ bench and other projects. We’ll be hosting mini-workshops on cob, Permaculture design and dry-lands water use & reuse. Bring your instruments, a dish to pass at the potluck, and your swimsuit for a dip in the rocket-hot tub. Camping costs $15 per night. Other than that, the event is free! Call JTL at 760-366-1213 to reserve your site.
