Way to go Kelda!  I've been to most of the workshops now and I have to say that this one was the best.  By far, the best organized.  BY FAR!  You really created some instant, cool community there.  I wish the other workshops had half the good vibe that you pulled together with this one.

Thanks guys!
I knew it was going to be an awesome workshop the minute I saw the ponds on my first tour. Heck yeah!

Look for more events at Mick's in the future

I still have fond memories of this event and can't say how greatful I am to kelda for putting it together. I also have some terrible news which I feel I must share. This month Laila died. She is/was the woman in the right front row of the group picture. I will miss her in ways I cannot convey, but I know this event gave her a great deal of pleasure and happiness. It also helped us shape how we looked at land. It was only a few weeks ago she looked at our bay area hills and thought we should have swales and ponds along them to solve our own water issues, and I know this event made that conversation possible.

I hope Mick and Vicky are doing well, I have not forgotten their generosity one day. Laila and I had planned to return and see them until her illness. Anyway thanks again Kelda, your efforts touched us both.
