“The organic gardening weekend was a beautiful experience! Even with it raining nearly all weekend, we found tons to keep us busy, from harvesting honey to touring Permaculture farms in the area. I was so happy I got to visit The Farm and see life in an intentional community as well. All in all I hope i make it back someday.”
