Letter to the Editor: How Much I Have Learned from the Wilmette Institute

Doris Bogardus has taken a few Wilmette Institute courses over the years, but, since May 2017, she has taken five courses. We suggest that you google the “hugelkultur beds” that she mentions below. Besides being a fun word to say aloud, it is an amazing type of gardening.—THE EDITORS

I have been a Bahá’í for forty years. With the help of the Wilmette Institute I have learned more in this last year about the Faith than all the other years combined. Just wish I could remember all of it. I have three children, five grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. Trying to be a snow bird, now in Florida near Gainesville. Hope to turn each of the two acres I have—one in upstate New York and one in Florida—into food forests. Starting with small hugelkultur beds. Planning to take part in a Bahá’í summer of service project in June.—DORINDA (DORIS) BOGARDUS
