Kohlrabi, Dumpstering, and Spring Comes to East Brook

Skyfish Mid-Process

by Raven Cotyledon

Thumbs has already detailed the story of the early construction work on Skyfish, at East Brook Community Farm, including how a fish actually fell from the sky and thus named the building, in an earlier Commune Life post.

I visited East Brook Community Farm on my way to the FEC assembly and toured the farm.  I was intrigued by Skyfish.

From the outside it looks finished:

The back of it is especially colorful:

There are some lovely details:

But inside the building is a different story:

Sarah told me that they hope to finish Skyfish this spring and it will provide housing for new community members.
