We hope the Spring Equinox has warmly greeted you all and awakened new parts of your being, creating abundant, rich energy for the season to come. Here on the farm we are transitioning out of our precious hibernation and rejuvenation and beginning to move a lot more. This Winter was full of creation, gatherings, councils, conferences, and all kinds of web weaving, leaving us feeling truly nourished by this larger community of land stewards. While bundled up in the depths of the cold, we also dove deep into our dream world – envisioning and planning with our team exactly what we desire to create in 2018. We are in awe as we look back at last year and what it brought us and taught us – You can catch a few glimpses of spring to spring 2017-2018 in this video, full of gratitude and inspiration.
We are now beginning to plant the seeds of this season, and it fills us with great joy. There is a certain kind of intensity that comes with this Spring time energy and we are being mindful of this, harnessing it and distributing it where it is needed most. The Organic Compound invites you to come share this magical time of year with us on Sunday, April 22nd – EARTH DAY. We will be kicking off our year by getting our hands in the soil and having a bit of spring time work/play (weather permitting). As always, we’ll share food and time around the fire. More details about this event here.
This year we are officially hosting volunteer days, or as we like to call them garden gatherings, potlucks, work/play parties, or simply a reason to gather EVERY SUNDAY and share moments and ideas.
We will be posting monthly calendars to keep you updated on what projects will be happening each Sunday. Times will be very flexible but we will begin to gather around 11:00 (seems reasonable, right?) and see where the day takes us. All volunteer days include meals, but guests are welcome to bring food to share. Looking farther out into the season, there are a few annual events that we would love to see you all at!

Thank you so much for co-creating this vibrant community with us.

Wishing you all a beautiful growing season full of deep connection and regeneration.
