Harvesting Food; Raising Consciousness

Posted 10/14/2017 7:30pm by Sally Voris .


"Assume you have enough. Assume that everything you need will be provided..."    Those words came to me from the spirit of my father and his mother one day as I  worked on the old farmhouse.    

These words came back to me this morning. I have listened to news of the Calfornia wildfires, the hurricane damage in Puerto Rico and the Presidential executive orders. I have also heard advertisements for one product after another, all addressed toward filling a need for something we lack.

The farm has taught me to raise my consciousness, as I raise food. Imagine beauty, bounty and balance--and watch it unfold. Imagine the fertile land that America is. Reconnect with that essential truth.  

This morning, a family of eight came to help in the garden. We dug sweet potatoes, picked green beans, tomatillos, turnips, lettuce, mustard, arugula, pumpkins and squash. We will eat great, fresh food this week. 

There are more sweets to dig--this Tuesday all day and Thursday evening are the best times to dig them for storing over the winter. Come enjoy the garden and take home some great food!   

In addition to food, we are offering other ways to raise consciousness:
