Welcome ...
This blog has been created to allow family and friends to share in and become part of the experience of 'Down at the Farm'.
Enjoy the children, their love for each other and their open hearted wonder and excitement.
Over time you will get to know the farm through their eyes and will see how they spend their day with each other in a very rich, organic way.
Each vignette is a snapshot in time. Follow from one to another, then on to more and you can share in our unfoldment and journey.
Enjoy your visit ...

Thanksgiving for the Solstice Bonfire ... and those who made it possible

It is with enormous gratitude to the farm staff and the volunteers they have the support of, that I share the Solstice Bonfire with you.  This simple community gathering honouring the shortest day of the year and the turn once more towards the sun and greater daylight; nourishes community spirit immensely.  The staff at the farm are quiet, dilligent and hardworking in all their endeavours and this wonderful evening shared by thousands is testimony to all they give ... it's a gift and blessing to our community. 

Late afternoon crowds gather ...

... evening draws near

Food stalls ready to provide for the crowds ..

... the moment before

... here we go ...

sparks to the heavens ...

... almost done

... heading for home

... all still as things end
