Of course we all have questions about when we can get back into Tassajara. The main first step is for the road to open. That is up to the Forest Service and the County. No new word on that today, but for sure a few days away at least. They are still burning, hardly any smoke in the air here because the wind is blowing the other way.
The other necessary step is for there to be a viable compost shed at Tassajara before we are all there making compost. Keith and Steve Stuckey are talking on the phone right now about how to do that. In the meantime, I heard that the four at Tassajara are keeping the compost buckets in the walk-in.
Thank you to all those people who have offered to come to help. Please keep checking the Zen Center web site where we will say what we need as we know it. Also, Jane, we are talking about how to gather information that we have all learned in these fires and floods. I heard that Ted and Steve had a conversation at GGF.
I also heard that the trees in Tassajara all seem to be fine, including, miraculously, the big oak at the Birdhouse.
