How We Feast in Eden

At least once each week we host a feast open to anyone who wants to experience and share our abundance. Some come for a single evening, but many friends return again and again to be with us in the vortex vibration. We accept all with love and we expect the same; as the sign on our front gate reads, “only love enters here.” We share fresh juice, basil tea, greens, melons, and sweet potatoes from our garden, preserves, and a wealth of gifted and harvested treats. We cook, converse, jam out with homemade instruments, sungaze, stargaze, and sit by a roaring wood fire.

Eden’s feast is not just about the food, but of the real and practiced lifestyle of Consciousness and sustainability. To us, a simple way of life means investing as much as possible in ourselves, in our own work. Instead of eating in restaurants, we cook tastier and healthier food right here; instead of buying organic, we grow our own produce; as much as possible we rely on our own ingenuity to create our own high-efficiency energy systems. Our feast is a showing of gratitude for what we have and what we can create as a community, and we express it through our offering.

Some may call the Garden a “commune,” and some may have terms the describe us, the inhabitants. In truth, we are whatever we decide to be each day. We are builders, fixers, harvesters, gleaners, borrowers, salvagers, savers; we are craftsmen, writers, poets, and food lovers. Some of us are inhabitants of the Garden, some of Gaia, some sovereign nations unto themselves, and some are from the planet Tuatu. Aware of the multitude of possibilities, we are explorers. We pay attention to the consequences of our actions as they affect our natural resources and the planetary environment.

We live in truth, honor, and honesty in this full-spectrum Eden community.
