"I think often of Homestead: the aliveness; the perpetual sound of water; the soil - fertile with potential; the butterflies and winged-creatures flying about; your unconditional love for me; our deep chats in the kitchen; my relationship with the land, the way it nourished by body; the infinite blanket of stars in the evening; Hawk and his passion to teach, learn, co-create and enhance the wellbeing of everyone; Ayal and the magical, aligned reality she has created; Ayal's nuggets of wisdom and unwavering commitment to her own path that inspires all. I think of all these things and I remember who I Am.” Kim, 2016 WWOOFer


"How can words ever express the peace and tranquility that was so willingly given to me over the past couple of days? What you both have offered in your own unique way brings a sense of well-being - an inner belief and true knowing that all is right with the universe. Hawk, your willingness to share the gifts of knowledge about Mother Earth was so appreciated. Ayal, thank you for sharing your wisdom so freely. I am so grateful for your spiritual support and friendship. My quest is to unite the essence of this weekend with my everyday 'real world' life." - Daphne, workshop participant
