From the first community workday on March 6, 2010 when the bare ground of a sloping hillside was blanketed with people working to create our garden, Saturday workdays quickly became the favorite day of the week.  From March through October, hundreds of people have joined us on Saturdays to work together from 9 until noon and then to share a finger-lickin’, diet-busting pot-luck meal.  In the middle of the growing season, we also add a weekday work time.  These workdays affirm our vision of Peacehaven as a place for gathering and celebration for all people.

Every week as the garden fills with people, we find ourselves thinking about what draws folks to Peacehaven.  Surely there are as many answers to that question as there are people that show up to work every week.  For sure, there is the satisfaction of joining with others to create something big…something important…something that improves our world.  We see that every week and are thankful.  We also see the changes that happen to each of us as we go about this work.  The happiness we experience as we pile in the back of a pickup truck to ride to the back of the farm …the memories we recall of how to have fun as we watch a couple young boys enjoy playing in the mud…the pleasure we have in learning new things…the joy of being with a diverse group of people with and without special needs…the completeness we experience in sharing this work with others—we see changes like these every week and are thankful.  Perhaps these are the best changes of all…perhaps these are the changes that most improve our world.

This we know—what is good for this land is also good for our spirits.  We are grateful to the community for working, learning, and for sharing your gifts with us.  Peacehaven is not possible without you!!
