Celebrate the First Stirrings of Spring
Born from winter dreaming, life stirs and the first tender shoots emerge from the earth. As the wheel turns, we feel the promise of spring and the dawning of a new beginning. FREE ADMISSION to the gardens between 10 am & 12 pm Standard admission from 12 pm (see ticket prices above) | Companions FREE. Refreshments on sale 10 am to 1:30 pmThis is the first of our eight annual Earth Festivals which mark the cycle of nature. We gather at the well head at 12 pm for celebration and meditation until 12:30. At 12:30 we invite you to join us around the fire on the Lower Lawn for informal ’conversation’. We hope this will be an opportunity for people to share ideas, thoughts and beliefs, and a chance to increase connection through understanding. As in prevous years, the side gate in Wellhouse Lane will be opened at 11:20 pm to welcome participants in the White Spring ceremony to join us for the meditation. Please feel free to join us for all or any part of the celebration.
