Donna: My spirit-landscape is an ocean sand dune. The simplest of elements - sand, dune-grass, and driftwood are shifted and swirled by wind and water to create a behemoth that is an ever-adapting and present protective force. I strive to be like my spirit-landscape: a lifestyle built upon simplicity, a mentality that is ever-ready to adapt and grow, and a protector of our invaluable Mother Earth.
Franklin: Ever since I can remember, I’ve been on the search for something, unable to stay in one place for more than a few years. I’ve worked as a yerba mate Cebador, entrepreneur, English teacher, international youth travel guide, translator, graduate assistant, trail crew leader, and handyman for a food pantry. My favorite fruit is a Florida orange, and I’ll never say no when offered a yerba mate gourd.
