      :)

    19. Gary Lombardo on October 16, 2009

      Sounds like a great project. I am a big fan of growing local and producing local. I also am an avid outdoors person and have spent time in the yurts of NH. (Maybe my next stay will be at your yurt?). Good luck and keep us posted.

      I've added "$10 to SisPo" to my Google Tasks list for Thursday, which is payday for me. (Michael helped me spend my last one...) I am already clearing space in my living room for a mini-yurt. Keep the Twitter updates coming...

    26. Kevin Wadzuk on October 7, 2009

      once i find a job, i'm totally going to go yurt bizerk with the donations. good luck!

    27. Kate Pokorny Creator on October 7, 2009

      That's AMAZING, Catherine. We should totally send up a WWF banner and take a pic of the yurt with it on it when it's done :) I support ferret release...

      Expect WWF people to come up and help with the crocheting, whether you want them to or not...

      Catherine on October 7, 2009

      I told my coworkers about what you're doing, and because they're crazy environmentalists, they love it. One of them just got back from staying in a yurt on the Montana/Canada border with some DOI officials as part of our ferret release program. (I kid you not, you can't make this stuff up). Keep your eye out for my donation!

    30. Molly Mahoney on October 6, 2009

      This might be the most amazing thing I have ever seen! After bills are pain this month... I'm sending a donation your way!

    31. Mary Pendleton on October 6, 2009
