Do you know what the tree in the Garde of Eden looked like? Or the roses Nostradamus grew to make roes petal pilis to prevent plague? Are you taking turmeric and want to meet the plant? Join Khenmo Drolma as she leads an outdoor meditation at Goronson Farm where these esoteric plants are grown. We will tour the farm and then sit with a meditation designed to experience our deep connection to the Earth. Afterwards, guest will be encouraged to contemplatively wander and explore the farm—enjoying the terrace, meditation spaces, orchard, vineyards and rare breed ducks and chickens.
Guests will enjoy small bites made by Goronson Farm’s very own Chef Alex using the farms’ free-range, pastured eggs, and certified organic fruit & produce.
Come for an afternoon to be immersed in Earth’s joy, wonder, vulnerability and resilience at the beautiful Goronson Farm in Scarborough, Maine. 1-4pm

Introduction to a culture of generosity:
Buddhist monastics present the Dharma in the context of Dana, or generosity. The suggested donations allow participants to contribute at a level that meets their personal financial situation. This is an expression of trust that the generosity of the teachers and organizations creating programs are met in appreciation and support by the recipients.
