After the tremendous success of our share offer last September we’ve been laying the groundwork for exciting and important year at Sacred Earth. It will also be a transitional year as we settle into our new organisational structure, actively engage with our new membership and the local Horam community, roll out new projects and initiatives and begin implementing our five year business plan.
There will be plenty of challenges and some inevitable teething troubles, but more significantly there will be a weaving together of the dreams of our leadership team, management committee, membership and the wider community into a vision which we hope will inspire all of us to reach higher, further and deeper to effect lasting, regenerative change in the world.
Our team have been working very hard since January preparing the land for the many hundreds of visitors we look forward to introducing to our beautiful site this year. Sacred Earth founder Phil Greenwood has already successfully kicked off our first ten week Farm Buddies programme of the year and Alice from Sacred Seeds has hosted some popular herb garden volunteer days, but our new season of workshops and community events officially begins next weekend with our Spring Equinox Gathering on Saturday 18th and our Zen and the Art of Spoon Carving workshop on Sunday 19th March.
We will also be launching our Earth Elixir range of Biodynamically treated, Biochar-based soil conditioner and compost activator products at our Equinox Gathering. These products will then be available for purchase through our online shop by the end of the March. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in a making a bulk order. Find out more about Sacred Earth Biochar, including how you can support the project’s aim to help mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon in the ground.
We’re also delighted to welcome two new members to the team of people working on the land at Sacred Earth. Our new apprentice Charlie has been working closely with Phil and Emile since the beginning of the year and we’re also delighted to have a new sub-tenant, Alex, who is in the early stages of developing a forest garden project in a quiet corner of the site. We’ll be interviewing Charlie and Alex for the Sacred Earth blog in the near future. Please like our Facebook page or subscribe to our blog (see right sidebar) for more regular updates about how our team and our various projects evolve through the course of the year.
