Wintertime Botanical Oasis

Mark and Katherine, owners of Skydog Farm, are grateful to be opening their Wintertime Botanical Oasis for the 5th year in a row. The Oasis features an eclectic collection of hand propagated succulents and botanicals in a whimsically decorated 1,800 sq ft heated greenhouse. Many of the plants are for sale and others serve as Mother Specimens which are used for propagating plant babies and unique arrangements. It also provides an opportunity for new plant parents to their babies biological Mother. The lovingly curated collection also serves to inspire creativity, enliven curiosity about nature and to act as a refuge to the community throughout the dormant days of winter. All are invited to experience the sense of renewal that comes from taking the time to step out of the hustle and bustle and to spend some quiet time sitting with the plants and connecting to nature.

The Botanical Oasis is open to the public by appointment only and is available for private events November-April.

We offer the space as a gift to the community and gratefully accept donations for heating and maintaining the Oasis.

Katherine & Mark

Sunday January 29th

2-4pm

Sacred community, or Satsang, is the place to find fellow truth-seekers on the path. Together we create a heart-filled space that deepens us into the practices and the teachings. We provide a refuge for those hungry for connection, including ourselves. And collectively, we hold a wisdom that helps us remember when we forget. In the Ram Dass Fellowship, we come together and share our authenticity and curiosities of life under the umbrella of Ram Dass’s teachings and Maharajji.

Mushroom Cultivation

Join us here at the farmstead for an informative hands on workshop where you get to inoculate your own log/logs with your choice of either Blue Oyster or Lion’s Mane Mushroom spores.

Winter Solstice Spiral

The spiral walk is a tradition that honors the seasonal cycle of light and darkness by arranging a simple spiral labyrinth walk. Everything about the spiral walk is rooted in symbolism and ceremony:  from the form of the spiral to the red apples, evergreen boughs, beeswax candles and the objects placed in the spiral: as well as the walking meditation itself.
