The theme will be: Sacred Sexuality: I honor my creativity, my power, and my passion.  The event is free and open to women in our wider circle. We collect donations to support women refugees.

On Saturday night, Kim Forry called line, circle and square dancing in the chestnut barn at the farm to the music of Back Step Cindy. Imagine a cool crisp night, a star-filled sky, hot-mulled cider, home-baked cookies, fire in the fire circle and over 50 donations to our Silent Auction. An unforgettable evening!  

Our special thanks to The Piedmont Grouphttps://tpgins.net,  a corporate sponsor for the barn dance and the company that has insured the barn and the farm for some ten years.     

Mid-October is the perfect time for a Barn Dance; early November the perfect time for a Drum Circle to Honor the Ancestors. Jaqui MacMillan of Drum for Joy will lead this drum circle on Saturday, November 3 starting at 7:30 p.m. in the  barn. We will host a potluck for circle members (It is easy and reasonable to become a trial member) starting at 6:00 p.m. Bring pictures, mementos, favorite foods and stories of loved ones you want to remember--ancestors, favorite pets, and leaders--and help us decorate a community altar. Cost is $10/adult;$8/child;  $25/family. Children over 12 are welcome. Register here.  

Our next women's retreat will be Saturday, October 27 from 10:30 to 3:30 p.m.  A  core group of women gather as the seasons change to honor our own natural rhythms and the rhythms of the year. We share our stories, create a seasonal ritual, share food, and engage in an art activity. Bring food to share. Cost? $15 first-timers; $25 for regular attendees. Register here. 

Our next Global sisterhood gathering will be Wednesday, November 7 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the farmhouse, 5009 Teeter Road, Taneytown. The event is free and open to all women in our wider community. We do accept donations to support women refugees around the world. RSVP is helpful, but not required. Register here.

May our hearts be filled by the richness of community!

This fall, we invite you to become a sponsor for our first fundraising event, A Barn Dance, on Saturday, October 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.   All donations are welcome (and tax-deductible). They will be recognized, as will donations to our Silent Auction.  We are offering incentive gifts for donations of $50, 100, 250 and 500. 

What better way to honor the relationships we have formed with each other and the land than by celebrating the harvest together! (rather than doing a annual campaign in December.)     

Friends have donated bottles of wine, a picnic basket, a hand-made wreath, beauty products, a hand-made scarf, gift certificates to local businesses, custom framing, and unique house ware items. The farm will donate bottles of the farm's elder flower champagne, its okra pickles and rose water. 

Want additional information? Click for sponsorship options, a flyer for the event or to register.  

May we create beauty, bounty and balance in ourselves, our community and our world! And may we be blessed by the harvest!

Quiet time is starting....

We are now putting the garden to bed after a very wet season. The two local towns will  deliver leaves to the farm to build organic matter in the soil. We will hold women's circles and Global sisterhood Gatherings through the winter. Check our calendar for details about events.
