Magic of Moontree

MoontreeAround two years of visioning, planning, fundraising and manifesting have resulted in the reality of Moontree, a small building in tune and in harmony with nature, and the new home for the Park Garden department. A celebration was enjoyed for the opening on Friday, with a huge thank you to the Community and to all who have been so supportive.

It became clear quite early on that this project had its own radiant spirit – and its inspiration and vision have drawn forth support from many unexpected sources. To name just two: The Julia Butterfly-Hill Foundation helped financially and a lot of the furnishings have been donated by an Italian company which produces furniture from 100% recycled wood.

The photographs show the new entrance, the moontree, created by Paddy Atkinson from a design by Inga Orsi, and a scene from the celebration with Amanda, Inga, Paddy and Rona (Park Garden Focaliser).
