DescriptionA New Year’s Ceremony in the Garden of Saratoga Springs When the family cheer has run out and you have had enough of the Holiday Party scene- join your sacred brothers and sisters for a tree planting gathering. We will quietly reflect upon the seasons changing and what we intend to grow this next year- both metaphorically and literally. This Gathering calls Fae friends and lovers of plants and animals to huddle in the darkness near the winter night fire and during the short days get your hands dirty. We intend to plant apple and other fruit trees in an ancient rite of working with Mother Earth. But where should they be planted? We call those with an affinity for permaculture, horticulture, gardening, farming,landscaping, planting, fertilizing, honoring the earth, honoring our animal selves, mirthful and jolly earth Mommas and land Daddys. We call those who feel the planet and humans would benefit from conversations and plans about where to put trees that bear fruit for our tribe. We call those who want to understand these concerns more deeply. Our intention is to celebrate the seasonal shifts and have conversations and heart circles related to what does it mean to live in harmony with the land, walk lightly, understand permaculture, how can we be more sustainable? We will plant fruit trees NOW so that in 5 years we will celebrate the winter season with organic apple pies and applesauce and other naturally healthy and sustainable foods.
