We wrote this in the winter and sent it out but unfortunately many people told us they did not receive it. So here it is!

TCUP here wanting to say thank you to all you volunteers who came out over the past year and helped make our dream into a reality. Now that dayllight is down to about 8 hours a day, we have slowed down for the winter we are snuggled up in the upstairs of the Earthship! We have been reflecting
on all the work that had to be done to get here, and feeling gratitude for those who have helped us. We couldn’t have done it without you.
The slow times of winter are appreciated and we have been taking advantage of the slower pace and working on TCUP visioning and planning. We have acquired a kitten and have two fires burning in the woodstoves to help make our amazing new home homey and a balmy 12 degrees inside while it is -20 degrees outside.
Timber has been inspired to carve spoons and other kitchen items while hiding away inside. Sweet gum has crocheted some shorts and skated on the pond for the first time after some shovelling. Kale is enjoying winter(snow!!!) and trying to spend as much time in the mountains as possible. Martin is working and hankering to design our whole permaculture paradise. Carl is off visiting family in Quebec. Flap Jack is out in the mountains gearing up to set up a trap line. And dear old Darren has moved to Old Town for the near future and hopes to work on making the cabin his home in the spring.
Well that’s about it for us. Hope you all are doing well, wherever you are. We miss ya’ll! Come out this summer and help us finish the earthship if you are in the area or feel so inclined.
Lots of love from TCUP!
