Plowshares Farm Center
We offer groups of all ages, from preschoolers to adults, opportunities to reconnect with basic elements of life as experienced here on the farm. From simple educational programs for school children, to more involved immersions in farm living, and reflective retreats, we offer opportunities for you to:
- Engage your body, your mind, and your spirit. We offer you and your group a whole-person experience, providing opportunities for you to share in simple labor, to engage in active learning, and to experience moments of silence and reflection.
- Explore themes of kinship, reverence, and covenant. Woven through your experience at Plowshares will be opportunities to consider the deep sense of communion that defines our existence, the sacredness of such connections, and the responsibility we share as human beings for the continuing cultivation of these relationships in our everyday lives.
- Encounter the sacred mystery. You will be encouraged, in your own personal way, to open your heart to deeper meaning. Through time for silent contemplation or group reflection and discussion, you will have the opportunity to more fully develop a sense of reverence in the face of life and death realities on the farm and in nature.
Farmer Bob met his old friend, Esmerelda, the snake, in the Hen House. He tells us about her and then releases her in the woods.
Farmer Bob got a call from the post office that he had a special delivery. You’ll never guess what it was!
Reflections from the Farm
Gray tree frogs
who once announced the summer rains,
now lie frozen in dark December woods,
all but dead.
scribe interconnections on the sky.
They could just as well be roots:
an ecological genealogy.
Trees in a frozen fog stand as sentinels over resting pasture.
Summer’s noisy haste has passed.
