We want to thank everyone for all the love and participation at our 50th Anniversary Celebration. We are all blessed to have each other within this diverse community.
Saturday September 24th
Join us for a day of honoring the past, present and future of Stonehedge as we give thanks to all that have contributed and been a part of these magical gardens over the last 50 years.
We will be reflecting on the past, sharing stories and memories from the last 50 years. We will be enjoying the present with amazing art, music, workshops and food. And we will be projecting into the future, unveiling new projects, ideas for us to thrive for the next 50 years.
We are also excited to be collaborating with the Earthdance Global Peace Party to synchronize the Stonehedge event with International Day of Peace week September 17–25, 2016. On Sept 24th at 7pm we will be joining with people from around the world to participate in a global Prayer for Peace, which is an event coordinated with communities around the world.
The Mission of Stonehedge Cooperative is to provide a healing, sacred, inclusive environment for the cultivation of personal and community transformation and wellness through the gardens and nature; the arts and holistic education.
Stonehedge was founded in 1966 by Russell Keich and Don Herring with the purchase of an old Pennsylvania farm house and property three miles south of Tamaqua. Their dream was to create beauty and share it with others.
From their first day on the property, Russell and Don began the process of transforming the farm fields with the help of committed friends and volunteers into the beautiful gardens visitors see today. Each tree and flower was planted... each boulder placed... each pond dug... a titanic effort spanning 50 years as a labor of love and a gift to share with the community
In 2015, Stonehedge re-structured as a cooperative that includes the following member organizations: Stonehedge Gardens Inc.501 (c) (3) non-profit, Stonehedge Artist Cooperative & Gallery, Purple Sage Healing, Black Diamond Pottery, and The Seed House.
We will be making announcements throughout the month of all the special guests, musicians, artists, speakers and more that will be joining us for this special day.
Some amazing activities planned
