Moving with the Seasons - Summer Connection
with the Anam Cara Community

31 May - 7 June (starts Thursday evening 6pm)

Farewell to 'Time for Trees'

We have been growing trees on the croft for twenty years, fourteen of which were held under the banner of 'Time for Trees'. Sadly it has come to a sudden end with the recent discovery of New Zealand flatworm in our tree nursery. Remedial treatment to ensure the trees are free of this invasive species is time consuming and not practical on the scale of our operation. It is with this realisation that we have reluctantly taken the decision to close the nursery.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the hundreds of folk who have participated in our tree weeks over the years, which have always been such joyous and productive events. Sad as this decision is, we can be justifiably proud of the fact that we have produced in excess of half a million trees!

Introducing 'Moving with the Seasons'

With the closing of the tree nursery, we have created a new offering: ‘Moving with the Seasons’, which combines aspects of our popular work weeks alongside a deeper sense of retreat. Defined as four seasonal retreats, each week will be shaped by a daily rhythm of morning work periods out on the land, with the rest of the day devoted to a range of creative, stimulating and nourishing activities led by members of the Anam Cara community.

The relaxed nature of these weeks will include meditation, bodywork, saunas as well as wholesome communally prepared food, to rejuvenate and nurture body and soul. Individual massage and healing sessions will be available for an additional fee.

Summer Connection

31 May – 7 June (starts Thursday evening 6pm)

With the long light of summer fuelling this retreat, we will take the opportunity to participate in a range of optional outdoor activities on and off croft, which reflect the joy and exuberance of the season. An activity based visit to our woodland at Backies, Golspie gives a chance to share and participate in the vision for our permaculture forest. Alongside these explorations of the land, offerings of sound work, nature art and play will aid relaxation and wellbeing allowing our creative selves to flower.
