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 ...

Full circle ..

This little story is a powerful one.  If you haven't already ... read here, here and here to set the scene.

The younger siblings of some of the children who were part of this story so far are now at the farm.  Harvey's brother Samson, Agnes's brother Kornelius and Pepper's sister Frankie.

Samson asked if we could go to visit the trees that Harvey planted.  When we got down there, he and Kornelius and Frankie were so proud as we talked about how those trees got to be there and who had made it so ... especially when Oli and Jyra were really interested and enthusiastic to know all there was to tell.

For me, the most beautiful thing of all on this visit, was that I experienced that something that had been quite sacred to many in that first little clump of trees that got cut, had been restored.  I heard it in the conversation ... 'Hey, look there's rooms in here.'  'Yeah, let's go in and look.'   Which is almost exactly like the first conversation that ever took place in the little clump of Ash that disappeared.

This post is with huge love and much appreciation for Harvey, Agnes, Pepper, Finn and Omkara ... I hope you all love seeing that your trees have grown big and strong already and that a whole new world has opened up for every child who now wonders that stretch of the Yarra trail ... like you did ... looking for an imaginal world to enter and play in.
