Green Gulch Farm Visit a Great Start | April 13, 2014

Artists made it out to Green Gulch Farm(a Member of Marin Organic) for our inaugural artist visit of 2014 this past weekend.  Among those noted were Nancy Thomson of Tiburon, Muriel Shcmalberg Ullman of Sausalito, and a new member, Nancy from Petaluma.  It was a warm, pre-summer day; hot in the sun, but a little too cool in the shade- Good thing we had both.  I was there with my "zen dog", Mesa, and we enjoyed the long walk down to the gardens from the upper lots.  It's a special location, moving from Eucalyptus trees and forest out through the valley to the coast.

There was a morning Dharma Talk when we arrived, so we had to tiptoe past quietly.  As some of us left, there was a work party going on in the afternoon.

Thank you to the managers at Green Gulch for letting us create in this peaceful spot for a day.  I learned much from the signs of Buddhism around the property.  We saw bikes, horses, families and day hikers.   The Green Gulch Nursery offers organic plants and starts available for sale.  There were many plants and they looked healthy and new.  Please contact the Green Gulch Office for more info, or to volunteer. 

Our next visit will be to Toluma Farm + Tomales Farmstead Creamery
on May 25, 2014.

Let us remember the one who is not busy, and be free from self-cling-ing."

Hoping to paint this one!  Love the colors. - CProppé
