Rathdowney BA week 4

Open fires at night with peace and quiet no traffic noise, crisp air, country hospitality, and less travel time to get to the farms. Seems there is no downside relocating to Rathdowney. Also picked up a few new farms that did not know that BlazeAid was here in the valley repairing flood damaged fences.

The donations are rolling in as well, cash to buy food, unsold pies and bread from the bakery, milk from the dairies, and veggies from gardens. There is talk around the camp that eating this much pumpkin, roasted, boiled, soups and cakes might 
yellow our complexion. Will keep you posted on that one. Hmm, no pumpkin scones yet.

End of week four stats:
Registered Farms: 30
Farms Completed: 10
Fencing Cleared: 27.1km
Fencing Repaired: 12.8km
Volunteer Days: 424 (FTE)

More volunteers are always welcome. The expectation is the camp will be open for weeks to come and there are lots more donated pumpkins to devour.

Early morning before going out to work.
