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.

Diane Wittner has had an unexpected change of plans. We postponed her coming to lead the seed paper workshop until September 7. It is a wonderful process, I will be glad to show people how to make seed papers today from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. And we will host an informal full moon gathering afterward.
