After five seasons of focused attention loving this land from over seventy pairs of hands, a medicinal herb and food farm and wellness retreat venue with a strong educational focus has been created.
2017 established our farm within this community and beyond as an experiential educational venue for farming, learning and building health.
In 2018, we expanded the SpiritWorks Herbal Apothecary, fine tuned our herbal processing techniques, and honed our hospitality services for retreat and campground guests.
In 2019 we:
developed our state-wide and out of state wholesale markets,
continued to develops nursery stock for plant sales,
designed and implemented our weekly educational offerings for those living here and within our local community,
created our culinary herbalism farm to table meal options to be offered to retreat guests and be the mainstay of our nutrition for those living here,
offered wellness education and farm stay wellness retreats that focused on farming, herbs, yoga, cooking with organic food and herbs, creating a health building lifestyle, and exposure to the healing arts practiced by Lindy (www.spiritworks.us).
Our primary focus within the community we create together is learning, farming and building health, individually and in community with each other. We will also be welcoming vacationers for during their wellness farm stays to participate in our farm, health building, and learning activities.
2020 Apprentices and Interns will have set orientation arrival dates and a minimum stay of 60-day (Apprentices) and 30-day (Interns) total immersion work commitment with full participation in the community we create together. We anticipate a crew of 4-6 people at any given time in addition to our core management team. Participants are expected to be immersed in the on-site daily schedule dawn to dusk (which includes 2 hours daily personal time) five days a week. Your two off days may include group fun (rafting, hiking, swimming), farm visits, or personal time for rest, recreation and relaxation.
In 2020 we are also offering week-long Herbal Boot Camps. We anticipate this will be one week per month and activities will focus on main projects requiring integrated team work. Call for more details.
