“Earth” is the name the Chinese give to the energy of late Summer. Late Summer is the season of the Harvest. The gathering in of all that has been produced the rest of the year. As such it is correlated with nourishment and abundance, a time when grains are reaped and fruits are pieced in preparation for winter. It is a golden time of contentment and security, of basking in the flow of achievement and satisfaction. The energy of Earth is that of rich ripe stillness.Read More
During the remainder of the month of August, the Farm will be closed, so we will not be offering sessions or appointments with Diane during the month of August. If you choose to book an appointment, please understand that sessions will be scheduled upon Diane's return after September 3rd. Diane will have limited internet access during the time she is away, so emails, orders and inquiries will be handled upon her return after Labor Day. We thank you for your patience and understanding, and look forward to connecting with you in September!Read More
As we are fully embracing Summer, we can look at the nodes of Summer, which are smaller, mini-seasons that can tell us a lot about the natural rhythms of Summer and what we can expect. Each node is roughly 15 days in length with names symbolic of what is happening at that time of year.Read More

When you think about how many decisions you make for your dog(s) every day, you quickly realize how much you influence the quality of their lives. In this workshop we delve into an expanded view of your dog.
Comfrey is a multi-functional plant that is popular with permaculture gardens, because it helps plants function in their own mini eco-system and improve the soil quality. We've planted it around the farm for this very reason!Read More
If you’ve had an odd week, you’re not alone. And this weekend focused the elements of that oddness. By weekend, I mean March 31st and April 1st - we know Sunday was April Fools Day, because it snowed in the Northeast (into Monday, no less). What’s up? This: a full moon Saturday in Aries and Libra, with Mercury retrograde sitting next to the Sun, wondering what the heck is going on. Our good friend Chris Largent explains.
The little green sprouts are those of Timothy Hay. We planted the seeds in October and it started pushing it’s way through the frozen soil 3 weeks ago. Brave as can be! We use Timothy Hay around the farm as food and bedding for the rabbits, little did we realize the other benefits of this tiny green gem!Read More
As we are closer to the Spring Equinox and the traditional Western start of Spring, we start to see lots of green sprouting everywhere. But Spring starts much earlier than we may realize, and even Spring has mini-season's within her that are truly remarkable little periods where Nature is waking up and ready for brand new beginnings!
