After being in the military and then studying hydrology and geology at Evergreen, Opalyn now invests her energy in stewarding land and community. A resident of the Windward community for the past six years, Opalyn tends to rabbits, milks goats, and massages the wool of Windward’s sheep into yarn ready for the hands of weavers. Whether it’s wielding a welding gun, creating concrete forms, or fixing a transmission, Opalyn immerses herself in the joys of building a life from the ground up.
