If it’s your first time to The Mountain we invite you fIll our the Visitors Form and let us know if your interest and then join us for an event!
These events will resume in May 2019.
RealityFree Wednesday’s (Wednesday 6-10pm)
We invite you to take off your reality for a few hours and relax and revel in the harmonious space that The Mountain holds. Engage in deep conversation around topics such as: Medicine, Permaculture, TinyLiving Practices, Pillars & TouchStones, Each week is slightly different, as we move with the flow of The Mountain and it’s travelers that visits. Often times it’s at the FrogLounge with a wood fired hot soak, incense, soft music and the sounds of the mountain rolling through. Sometimes we are in the Rose Garden for singing and drumming, Other times we are at the WestWall Camp deep in the woods under a canopy of trees till the last log goes out.
Did I mention there is ALWAYS fire?!!! Fire connects us all!
Follow the RealityFree Facebook Page or Our RFW Meetup for weekly updates.
Thursday Mountain Medicine Making Sessions (4-8pm)
Each week we work with what the land has provided, harvesting and processing into medicines. Plant walks and identification, harvesting, processing, tincturing, oil infusions, salve making, wine making, syrups, elixirs, skin washes / liniments, poultices, fermentation’s, medicine baths, foot soaks, henna dying, dread care, scalp care, herbal Materia Medica (cross cultural), are just some of the topics that come up for discussion and physical doing. (Bring your own supplies and you can make medicines to take home with you. Come to event to learn more or email ahead of time.)
Bring your questions and curious minds. These sessions become more structured the more folks are regularly in attendance, and can blossom into fully structured 6 week courses, based on interest.
Class donation of $13 is suggested. This helps to support the supplies needed for the Holistic Free Clinic. (Though if finances are tight other arrangements can be made, simply inqire.)
Join us on the Facebook group to receive updates and keep in the loop. That is where the online discussion side of the physical medicine making class will happen.

Friday Garden 2 Plate Cooking & Community Feast (Fridays 5-8)
Garden 2 Plate is an outdoor cooking experience and learning/collaboration, with opportunities for building teamwork skills and a Community Feast to share together at the end. From planning the meal based on what’s in season, to harvesting the food straight from the community grown garden, cleaning, preparing, cooking and then sitting down together to enjoy. We’ll also be preparing teas from the garden and wine making through the summer.
If you are coming for cooking creations, come at 5pm, bring a simple food contribution (cooking grain, meat, cheese, breads, ect) and expect to be apart of the work in some way. The more questions you ask, the more you’ll get out of the experience. Here’s how it flows. Intention 1st: coming together to talk about what is available in the garden and what sounds good for diner. From there we’ll get into harvesting, cleaning, prepping and cooking and finally eating. (If you have excitement around bringing a specific recipe or idea that you want to share with people, then have a conversation with us, a few days ahead of time so we can make that happen.
This is an equal exchange sorta deal, bring food to contribute as stated dive and plan to donate in some way, financially or otherwise to the gardens cause (suggested donation is $10 per person). Another great exchange is to bring your instruments and play for your supper.
There’s a compost/wash/rinse/sanitize station where each person’s tends to their dishes afterwards. (It is encouraged that you bring your own feastware. If you forget we will have plastic ones on hand to some degree)
Let’s Feed Each Other Well, From The Garden & our Hearts!
Nemeton Community Garden (NCG)
We invite you to come work in the 50×80 Community Garden, learning sustainable practices and permaculture principles on a 5 acre parcel of land that features gardens, fields, paths, forest and thickets and mountain streams, all on the sloping side of a mountain. We plant from seed the foods we eat, growing them with tender consistent care, all the way though preservation and into seed harvesting for future years. Orchards and mushroom gardens are our next project.
Come for a garden visit and decide for yourself if joining the Community Garden is right for you! Those that become members contribute hours weekly or monthly to the garden efforts in exchange for fresh food from the garden, learning and fellowship.
Coming in 2019…..
