    Back to the Land!
    ​In this crazy, over-stimulating, distracting and often maddening time we live it can be easy to lose ones sense of self and connection to the earth. We hear people talk about feeling disconnected. We need grounding! We need to remember why we are here! We need to get  Back to the Land!

    The event site for the conference is on Double M Farm, Inc, a family farm
    that has been in Mac's (Robin's husband) family for five generations.
    Most of the property is hay fields and pastures plus woodlands,
    lake shoreline, ponds, creeks, and a few family member's homes.
