Adult Farm Camp

September 5 - 9, 2022

The Mountain and Many Hands Peace Farm are excited to announce a brand new program for 2022: Adult Farm Camp. We’ve received this suggestion from many jealous folks who’ve heard about our Farm Camp Program for middle school campers and wondered if we could offer something similar for adults. Adult Farm Camp 2022 will take place from Monday September 5th through Friday September 9th. Each day will have a central theme  such as plants, mushrooms, and animals, and the day will include talks, hands-on activities, and entertainment related to the theme. You don't need any prior farming or gardening experience in order to enroll, and we will focus on making the learning approachable and fun. Stay tuned for a full schedule. Day and commuter rates will be available.

Living our Mountain Core Values

The UU Principle, “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part” is an integral part of Mountain experiences and opportunities.  As an ecologically-conscious retreat and learning center located on 4,200 foot high granite cliffs on the Eastern Continental Divide in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we offer a unique opportunity to learn about and enjoy the ecology and geology of the area.  Perched on the Eastern edge of the Highlands Plateau, this temperate rainforest includes an Old Growth Oak Forest, one of the oldest in the U.S. 

 

Our four ecosystems with the highest floral and fauna diversity in North America have nurtured multiple cultures including the Cherokee Nation. Acknowledging the privilege of being part of this special environment, there is a responsibility as stewards of The Mountain.  Embracing the multitude of learning opportunities, we are enthusiastically offering a variety of events and practices for adults and youth to learn about the significance of our earth’s interdependent web.
