This year marks 30 years of Beltane at Stone Mountain Farm. We had press releases ready, Vanaver Caravan Dancers rehearsing, performers and our preparations with the town underway.

But as you all know, this year is different on the planet.
Will there be Beltane? Yes, there will be the first of May, and we hope you will mark it outdoors where you are, with your eyes on the greening earth, on the snowy branches and on the beauty of Spring's return.

We will not have a festival at Stone Mountain Farm for Beltane this year. We hope our next opportunity shall be more wonderful and magical. Please carry the joy with you that we have made in the past in your hearts at this time and know that you all, our beloved community, are extraordinary makers of magic and weavers of healing.

With love, The Larsen Family and The Center for Symbolic Studies.

Midsummer at Stone Mountain Farm- Saturday, July 28th

How do we build a wicker man every year at Midsummer? With the help of community on the day of the event! There's a frame to be built, usually topped with a grinning head made of wood. Straw is bound around the frame, then packed in the straw an offering of the fruits of first harvest are often added along with wishes and things we might want to let go of. [ 114 more words ]

Lots of folks have asked about Midsummer at Stone Mountain Farm... and yes , as always, we will be celebrating this year festively as a community on Saturday, July 28th. Everyone is invited to help build the Wickerman that day, and we will burn him at dusk. Bring some first fruits of the harvest and some wishes or thankful thoughts to pack into the straw when he burns..

If you feel moved, bring a potluck dish to share ,an instrument to play or a tale to tell around the fire. We look forward to seeing you!

Wan't to get your volunteer time in early? Come work on Puppets!!!
This weekend was yo be the first weekend we were going to go out to the studio to look at puppets. Since it looks like it will snow / rain on Saturday, I will stay home on that day unless the weatherman is particularly wrong. Sunday looks like the bright an sunny day, so we will be out to open the puppet trailer, gather puppet costumes to clean and do a general once over of the main players.

If you have spoken to someone about volunteering for puppets on THIS Saturday at the studio, please let them know that we will be there Sunday. Otherwise, I have officially said that the 14th and 21st are puppet weekends. Contact Robin at 845-658-8112
