Winter is fast approaching!
Have you been by the farm recently?
Autumn is on it’s way out, leaving an exhilarating nip in the air and a great view from the top of our mountain since the trees have shed their leaves leaving great expanses of sky and clouds. Don’t take my word for it, hike up to the Faerie Gazebo to see for yourself! Take the long route, walking the labyrinth first and then hike Tim’s new zig zag trail up the west side of Moss Mountain. Nothing better for the spirit then being out in nature with just the basics, where less is definitely more!
Enjoy some quiet time to reflect by yourself or with friends and family, or to soak up the earth’s energy bubbling up.
Hours: 8am – to Sunset
When you visit the farm please be sure that everyone signs in at our guest book each time at the big stone barn at the front table. If you have not filled out one of Liability Release Forms, or have brought guests who have not, please do so. (We keep them on file so you only need to do once.)
We ask walkers and visitors to please contribute to our Donation Jar that helps us to continue our constant work to improve the farm, creating a peaceful sanctuary and green environment on the 60 wooded acres as well as a gathering place for those interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
If you are bringing guests that are new to the farm please let them know that Sticks & Stones is a SMOKE, DRUG & ALCOHOL FREE FARM and we ask that all visitors respect that. There is no smoking allowed anywhere on the property.
Interested in holding a workshop, family reunion, birthday party, fundraiser, wedding or gathering of any sorts during 2014? It is not too early to start making plans and get your pick of dates. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss it!
Please RSVP to any of the events below, at the facilitators number or email given. If you specifically would like to reach Tim or I, please email us at email@example.com.
May All Beings Be Happy,
Annie & Tim
