After a Solidarity Saturday a visitor shared this moving reflection:

“Wonderful having the opportunity to meet you … and to see the extraordinary farm and lifestyle you’ve nurtured into existence. Inspiring and invigorating, your landscape engrained in my mind a positive perspective for future human settlements. Thank you for sharing your time and teachings.”
