Look here for a Story soon... until then, you can always discover more Stories.
A sudden and violent windstorm tore down many old larch trees in our nature preserve. What was once a trail among tall trees is now a labyrinth of upturned trunks. And yet there is a strange beauty to these trees, as their root systems are exposed and new plants take root in the clumps of soil. We will explore this contrary area of the forest, look for what’s strong and lovely and resilient there, have a meditation on brokenness and wholeness… and make a spontaneous gift of guerrilla beauty for the trees.
