A heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the recent work party at Swallowtail’s 26-acre Farm property this past week. The pad for the yurt was completed in time to welcome the framework of our new “dry space” for field trips to the rural property.

A view of the new yurt's framework (from the north, with the line of oaks in the distance).

While the walls will give it a different look when the children arrive to visit this autumn, the structure of the building really stands out against the towering grove that embraces the yurt on two sides.

The yurt framework nestled against the backdrop of evergreens.
