Forest Update Fall 2013

Posted November 15th, 2013

The last few weeks have been very busy at the hostel. The last weekend in October and the first weekend in November the Hostel hosted yoga fundraisers. The staff and other guests were welcome to join in learning from exceptional teachers. This past weekend a gathering of handpan musicians filled the forest with angelic sounds. The winter garden is planted and thriving. We hope to have a salad of greens from the garden at dinner every night throughout the winter. There have been a couple of projects that are being wrapped up as well. Elmos has a new staircase, and the floor of the Glass House is being painted with a beautiful mural.

As always, the Hostel continues to attract international travellers. We have hosted guests from Sweden, Columbia, France, and Canada. The Hostel also has been home to a few new adorable baby chicks, which appeared just a couple of days ago.

Coming up is our November Sweat Lodge and not too far away is Thanksgiving. The circle of gratitude and the meal for Thanksgiving are going to be very special here at the Hostel. Firewood is stocked up for both inside and outside fires, so we will all be warm and cozy. We look forward to hugging you all and sharing stories fireside.

May the Forest Be With You
