A mission team from Tulsa, OK had time for some improv fun after doing some painting & general labor on the WW campus.
Do you know what it is like to visit a farm or organic gardens and to learn from the practices of those that did not rely on electricity centuries ago?
Well, this organic farm practice is from the early Incas in Peru. These two were Wellness Weavers since they met in 1968, long before there were people or a system known by that name. Helen Stucky (Risdon, RN 1976-2016)-Weaver on left, and Dr. Carmen Beverly graduated from Salina High South, Salina, Kansas in 1972.
Would you like to get fresh air and some creative exercise? Marshall Co has trails & even some with rails.
Bike Across Kansas (BAK) got a quick pass through for some water, and a little mirth aid. Happy to report that no first aid from the Wellness Weavers' nurse was needed that day! That is a two-person powered railcycle that goes on private tracks. There are 12 miles of the Central Branch Historical Railroad that connect Waterville and Blue Rapids.
Lifetime members are supposed to be able to put our vehicles on the track. They do not yet have policies and procedures for people that value physical activity and a scenic quiet experience. The tracks sit quiet most of the time.
This was an open house in the 1885 Stone Barn with "Amelia Earhart, the Time-Traveler", giving a tour to some railroaders who were interested in seeing the airplane "skeleton". Finishing the building of the 1930 Gere open-cockpit biplane is just one of the Community Service-Learning Projects for Wellness Weavers and our guests. Individuals that are qualified as TEAM planners, supervisors, and worker bees are the ones that earn time credits for every hour of free time volunteering. Those that want to explore being on a team, pay money for the experience...or take the training for being one of the volunteer Wellness Weavers.
Would your family like to meet real Americans and help us all learn to have inner peace and solve the problems we are facing?
Amelia Earhart's finest work was to help the world to do that.

Cutting potatoes for planting in the Community Gardens at the Walnut St. House was a new experience for this family.

Businesses can also be part of the Corporate Barter Solutions Global network that allows them to legally stretch their cash and barter for tax-deductible expenses and supplies from the more than 60,000 businesses in the network.
Employees and volunteers will be able to enroll in the Wellness Weavers system of Community Service-Learning in their Community and then spend their Health Bucks in their local or any global community that has the Wellness Weavers system.
