Please join us this Fall on a retreat that will provide you the opportunity to bear witness to:

The natural world: the soil, the elements, plant and animal life
Racism in our food systems and communities
Activist farmers building a just and sustainable future
While this retreat will contain some history and activities you might also find on a tour, the point is not to merely gain information. Rather, we intend to realize an embodied, mindful and heartful experience of interconnection. We aim to bring familiarity, understanding and intimacy to parts of humanity characterized by trauma, separation, and invisibility. We will experience that another world is not only possible - it’s on the way.
