Dear Spencer and all those involved, Thank you for creating this special initiative for people with special needs. Lauriston farm is well placed and has the possibility to nurture people through biodynamic activities. You are so intertwined with nature that there is also the space to breathe and be at one with the environment, developing a deep respect for ‘one and all’. The joy which develops through meaningful activities and relationships is so necessary for all human beings and especially for those who often do not get the opportunity to participate fully. Being a teacher of children with multiple disabilities it would be wonderful to have more initiatives like yours. All the best with the community share offer. Odilia
