Welcome to Our 2014 Season!

White Rose Farm offers a place to connect with the beauty, bounty and balance of nature. 

I understood more deeply how important a place can be when when I visited Carolyn Toben at the Timberlake Earth Sanctuary near Greensboro, North Carolina,  She had been friends with theologian Thomas Berry. He asserted that, "The human-earth relationship is the primary experience of the Divine. We are touched by what we touch, we are shaped by what we shape, we are enhanced by what we enhance.The sense of the sacred is at the heart of it all."  

In our modern world, there are so few places that nurture the human-Earth relationship. At White Rose Farm, we invite people into the gardens to touch, shape and enhance the natural world. When they return to their own worlds, they carry that touch with them.  

The outer world of nature and the inner world of humans go together, Berry said. As we connect with the world around us, we promote wholeness in ourselves and in our world. We restore our commons--common air, common water, common-unity.

How exciting!

No family time tomorrow

Posted by Sally Voris :: Monday, July 28 :: 7:52am

Business calls me away from the farm tomorrow morning, so we will not have family day tomorrow.

The farm has started picking times on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. We have wonderful produce in the garden, and this week, our half-price special will hold all week---small tub, $7.50. medium tub, $10, large tub, $15. We ask that you pick a variety of produce so that others may share the variety too. 

Hope to see you!

Again this year, the farm will use an economic model developed by Charles Eistenstein. He encourages us to honor that the gifts we give each other have more than monetary value. Know that it costs roughly $125/day to maintain the farm. We invite you to contribute to the farm according to the value you believe you receive from the farm and its work.
