fall community workday a success

We had a productive community workday this morning with surprisingly cooperative weather.

Lots was done. Flower beds around transformers, Governor’s House, and Common House are clean of weeds!

camping out (sort of)

A contingent of Nubi kids wanted to go camping together before the new school year brought summer to an end, so some ideas were floated. Most involved traveling some distance, or perhaps venturing across Nubi’s hayfield and pitching tents near the river.
