We are excited to announce the arrival of our winter intern crew- Lori Ducharme, Peter Buley, Tony Chang and Hannah Barrows. They arrived last week and have been undergoing extensive orientation and training to get everyone up to speed on the how we do things here at the 'morrow. You can read their bios and see photos (along with profiles of past interns) on our website at: www.yestermorrow.org/inthis.htm. Today everyone is down in the shop for a special two-day boxmaking workshop with Skip Dewhirst getting comfortable with the shop tools and making some sweet little wooden boxes!
