  • A Place of Peace

    A Place of Peace We work to create an environment and a rhythm of life conducive to prayer and contemplation. We dedicate our lives to non-violence, and to the pursuit of peace and reconciliation of all people.

  • A Place of Service

    A Place of Service Service is born out of our life together. Service takes place on and off the farm often in the many small ways we help each other and others. Guests often join us in our work and service.

  • A Place of Community

    A Place of Community Koinonia, a Greek New Testament word, means “communion,” “community” or “fellowship.” Like the first Christians, we worship, work, study, serve, live and eat together.
