Event Description

"The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility.” — Wendell Berry Each one of us has our own unique experiences with the natural world. As farmers, gardeners, and land stewards, we have made commitments to particular pieces of this good earth that nourishes us. Through the lens of our direct experiences with land (our biographies), we will explore the nature of our kinship and commitments to the part of the earth that we live with. Such an exploration can strengthen and clarify our resolve to work in partnership with our farms, gardens, yards, and landscapes. Such an exploration can reveal the next right things to do for the land that we have kinship with. We will spend our time together with artistic exercises, writing, and conversation. We invite you to step into experiential learning. Turn to wonder and awe as we listen with an open heart.
