Welcome to our blog.

Spring is coming, though the wide extremes in weather have challenged piglets and lambs on my friend's farms. My heifer, Hazel, is due to calf in March. I will keep you posted. 

Our Circle's Board is in the midst of planning our programs for the  coming season. I'll share more details soon. For now, we have these events planned for March: 

GLOBAL SISTERHOOD GATHERING: Our next gathering will be on Wednesday, March 6 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road, Taneytown.  We will lead a program based on materials from the Global Sisterhood. The event is free and we collect donations to support women refugees.  RSVP.

Our next Women's Circle will be on Saturday, March 30 from 10:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road.  This is a time to pause, reflect, refill and reset our inner compass. We meet eight times a year to honor the seasons of the year and the seasons of our lives. The events include a seasonal ritual, a time of sharing, an art activity and a shared meal. (Bring food to share.)  Cost for participant: $25; first-timer, $15.00. Register here.

The Retreat House available for overnight stays for those who want to enjoy the quiet of the country and step away from technology and stress. 

May we prepare for spring and a new burst of energy!

On a recent morning, I woke to sunlight, snow and silence. Then I began sharing stories with a close friend.  This is the gift of the midwinter season on a farm, and I invite you to treat yourself to an overnight retreat. This space offers shelter, clarity and grounding from the chaos that swirls around us now. We have a mid-week special--three consecutive night for a reduced rate or single nights and most weekends through airbnb.  

Our next Women's Circle will be on Saturday, February 2 from 10:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road.  We meet eight times a year to honor the seasons of the year and the seasons of our lives. The events include a seasonal ritual, a time of sharing, an art activity and a shared meal. (Bring food to share.)  Cost for participant: $25; first-timer, $15.00. Register here.

 We are also making the Retreat House available for overnight stays for up to four women on Friday night, February 1 and Saturday night, February 2, so those coming from a distance can spend a night away and really relax in the quiet of the country. Please call 410-756-9303 or e-mail sally@whiterosefarm.com for more information or to reserve your space on these nights.   

GLOBAL SISTERHOOD GATHERING: Our next gathering will be on Monday, February 4 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road, Taneytown.  We will lead a program based on materials from the Global Sisterhood. The event is free and we collect donations to support women refugees.  RSVP.

May we center ourselves in the silence and prepare for spring and new growth.

What do you raise on your farm? The question came from a colleague I had known in another chapter in my life. Dare I say out loud that I cultivate pregnant space--space where we can express ourselves and ask questions without knowing what the answers will be, where we can connect with nature and be transformed in the process, where we can create community events that bring us together. A place of forming, becoming, blossoming...

So it seems most appropriate that our first program of the new year will be:  

GLOBAL SISTERHOOD GATHERING: Our next gathering will be on Saturday, January 5 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road, Taneytown.  Renee Deiaco will lead the program with the  theme: Her Revolution: I prioritize my soul's needs. The event is free and we collect donations to support women refugees.  RSVP.

We have planned this event for the afternoon so that our elderly friends who cannot drive at night can join us. Participants are welcome to stay for tea and conversation. (Please feel free to bring light refreshments to share.) 

RETREAT HOUSE AVAILABLE: We are also making the Retreat House available for overnight stays for up to four women on both Friday night, January 4 and Saturday night, January 5 to give women a chance to steep themselves in the quiet of the country for a soul's retreat! Please call 410-756-9303 or e-mail sally@whiterosefarm.com for more information or to reserve your space!(The Retreat House is available at other times through airbnb.  

May we find our and follow our heart's path! Happy New Year!

Quiet time is starting....

Hazel is back! She is pregnant and due midwinter. Our thanks to Leah Mack, at whose farm Hazel and Daisy spent the summer with a virile bull.  Now we want to find Daisy, a pure-bred Jersey, a new home. She is pregnant and due mid-spring. Interested? Please contact me. Thanks. Sally
