Here are some photos of our volunteer day at Bluestone farm. Located in Brewster, New York, The Community of the Holy Spirit is a monastic community for women in the Episcopal Church, and a witness to the work of the Holy Spirit in the world. As part of their ministry, the Sisters have created Bluestone Farm based on the the principles of organic agriculture, biodynamics, permaculture, and the importance of re-skilling for the future. Join us for a volunteer work day for a chance to reconnect with nature, with your own nature, and the whole-food justice system. If you are interested in joining this fun, spiritual outing, please contact Stacey Carpenter or Mother Liz. We will meet at Grand Central Terminal early that morning and take the MetroNorth train.
What to bring: Sack lunch, your favorite work gloves, sturdy shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, water bottle (with your name on it).
Recommendations: Eat a hearty breakfast before you arrive. Feel free to stay longer (up to 4:00 pm) to finish a project or just to help out more. Cameras are fine, but do obtain permission from others if planning to post photos to the public; layer clothing.
We hope you can join us! More information can be found here about Bluestone Farm and The Community of the Holy Spirit.
