Week 15 ~ September 26

Greetings from the farm where we are hosting the cast and musicians who will perform The Wastelands here Sept. 29, 30 and Oct. 1. Sharing space, farm fresh meals, stories and work generates creative energy. As the wheel turns westward and we begin the process of expanding our inner landscapes, I am reflecting on the nourishment that comes from this land, both physical and spiritual. I hope you will be able to attend the performance. For more information, go to [www.childrenofthewild.org][1]
