The gardening in Arctic Village has started well. The planned community gardening project turned into individual gardens at 15 locations throughout the village. Thankfully, we had a greenhouse to begin the plants in as the ground was finally warming up in mid June. Bill faced daily snowfall his first week there, May 22, and some hesitation of being welcomed due to many outsiders working in the village. Had we been first-time visitors to the village, we more than likely would not have been accepted with friendships made. We were eventually accepted with appreciation shown by being invited into many homes to break bread and fellowship. Expanded sharing will happen when we arrive back in Indiana. Look for the DVD!
