Hummingbird Bed and Breakfast is all about learning to recycle and reuse. There is a wonderful term for this in the Japanese culture. It is Known as Wabi Sabi: "[Wabi-sabi] nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect." - Wikipedia
Wabi now connotes rustic simplicity, freshness or quietness, and can be applied to both natural and human-made objects, or understated elegance. It can also refer to quirks and anomalies arising from the process of construction, which add uniqueness and elegance to the object. Sabi is beauty or serenity that comes with age, when the life of the object and its impermanence are evidenced in its patina and wear, or in any visible repairs.
Much Of what we have and use is second-hand and gently used. As we hope our bodies are healthy so do we hope to impact Mother Earth. We are learning to lessen our carbon footprint and co-inhabit instead of run-over.
At Hummingbird B & B our focus is also on health and healthy alternatives to regular vacation slip-ups. Our food is organic and natural. We focus on alternative grains, raw foods and unique preparation. We still offer some good old stand-bys but hopefully our guests will enjoy the little healthful twists. We have our own organic garden that we use to serve the freshest vegetables (when in season) and season with the freshest herbs grown here too.
