The farm will host a special full moon gathering tomorrow evening at 7:30 p.m. (Sun sets at 8:15 p.m. ) Two fellows just did a fine job rebuilding the fire circle at the farm--it seems just in time for the full moon tomorrow.  All are invited to join us for this event (not just women) which will end around 9:00 p.m. Bring poems, songs, musical instruments or other offerings.   

The Global Sisterhood just sent me this information: 

"This full moon in Aquarius, we invite you to examine what emotional beliefs you hold just below your awareness that could be blocking flow, pleasure, and joy in your life. How are these beliefs limiting you from standing in the truest, most radiant, magnetic expression of yourself as a lover, leader, helper,  humanitarian, and inspiration?

Pay attention to your emotions to discover what beliefs are guiding your life. What stories are asking to be seen and understood so they can be re-written? 

  • Pay attention to your dreams
  • Notice subtle feelings in your body
  • What triggers you?
  • What shuts you down?
  • What awakens and inspires you?
  • What fears come up throughout your day? Do you notice a pattern? What is the belief beneath these fears?


Throughout the next weeks leading up to the new moon, we invite you to journal about these themes.  If you are seeking clarity or reflection from your sisters, feel free to post your discoveries in the Global Sisterhood Facebook Group!

As you choose to do this inner work around this potent full moon, you will be well prepared for an epic and potentially life-changing transformation on the New Moon Solar Eclipse on August 21st!

As sisters, together we will rise as leaders, liberating ourselves from fear, as we "embrace the shadow" and shine brightly in service to our souls, families, communities and world. " 

My heart says this is work worth doing. Join me in spirit or in person if you feel so called. May we transform the world through love.

Sally

Tasty, juicy, sweet--the essence of high summer. We invite you to celebrate the garden's bounty at Lammas, the feast of the first fruits (traditionally August 2). It is the time when the food in the garden is scrumptious, a time when the first hint of autumn can be felt in the air...

Learn How To Make Salsa, on Saturday, July 29th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. . We will start with a garden walk Participants will pick and taste various kinds of tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, onions and herbs. Then Kasey Johnson, an avid fermenter, will demonstrate how to make several different kinds of salsa. Last year, she shared her own fermented salsa: it was the best I have ever tasted!

Kasey loves to ferment! She recently harvested wild blueberries so she flavored her last batch with blueberry and thyme! She has also fermented sauerkraut, radishes, chutney and mulberry mead!

The farm will then host a potluck and fire circle for farm circle members after the program. The event is free to farm circle members (becoming a member is easy); cost to others? $20.00. Register here.

OUr next gathering of the Global Sisterhood will be this Sunday, July 23 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the farmhouse--5009 Teeter Road, Taneytown, MD. It is open to all adult women. They are calling for storms, but I have a big barn so I think that even in rain, we can dance, dance, dance. 

Catherine Palmer will lead Dances of Universal Peace for this event. These dances involve simple movements and singing. They restore a sense of well-being and joy. Please register so we can plan for the event. For information about the Global sisterhood, visit www.women,unify.org. 

After the program, we invite you to join us for a potluck around the fire circle and informal sharing. The fireflies are still rising from the fields, and the stars on a clear night will be especially bright at the new moon.

There is no charge for the program, though we accept donations to support women refugees. We recently sent $100 to the Global Sisterhood, enough to support a woman for two months! 

On Monday, August 21 at 7:00 p.m. Vickii Engell Thomas will lead a program on EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques. Vickii writes, "EFT is a type of meridian tapping that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology with startling results.  Come learn to tap ...to release pain, ease anxiety and stress, or help to change the way you think."  

Hope you are having a great summer and hope to see you soon!

This land is calling for connection, one with another and with the land that feeds and sustains us. She is like a mother calling her children home for a feast of her bounty....

In this spirit, we invite you to the farm in the height of summer to celebrate the garden's bounty at Lammas, the feast of the first fruits (traditionally August 2). It is the time when the food in the garden is the tastiest, the juiciest, the sweetest, a time when the first hint of autumn can be felt in the air...

 

On Saturday, July 29th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. we will focus on how to make salsa. We will start with a garden walk Participants will pick and taste various kinds of tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, onions and herbs. Then Kasey Johnson, an avid fermenter, will demonstrate how to make several different kinds of salsa. Last year, she shared her own fermented salsa: it was the best I have ever tasted!

Kasey loves to ferment! She ferments kombucha every week flavored with ingredients that are in season. She just recently harvested wild blueberries so she flavored her last batch with blueberry and thyme! She has also fermented sauerkraut, radishes, chutney and mulberry mead!

The farm will then host a potluck and fire circle for farm circle members after the program. The event is free to farm circle members (becoming a member is easy); cost to others? $20.00. Register here.

 Yes, the veggies are coming in and there is now plenty to pick--summer squash, beans, kale, cabbage, chard, onions, broccoli, carrots--potatoes to dig and cukes and tomatoes soon. There are also herbs---

as chaotic as the world is right now, a place to be grounded and balanced seems even more important than any one vegetable, flower or herb.

The farm is open to farm circle members Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings starting at 8:30, and Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings starting at 4:00 p.m. It is easy to become a member.

I am envisioning Gal's Day on Friday mornings--a chance for women to gather in the garden, talk and work and then enjoy a lunch and conversation. So far, it hasn't happened.... maybe this week it will. 

My best to you all. May we all find ways to appreciate Nature's bounty,

Sally
