On December 5, 2017, the Thomas Fire raged through The Ojai Foundation land taking over 24 structures, including our staff residence, two program kitchens and all of our overnight hermitages. In early spring, we launched our RECOVER & REIMAGINE Campaign to raise the funds needed for clean-up and recovery, as well as for a period of listening together for how best to begin anew. As of May 20, the monumental task of debris removal is complete, allowing us to focus on basic infrastructure, damaged buildings and the gardens, hillsides and forest; while continuing to reimagine and chart our future.
Please check back regularly and join our mailing list for updates, ongoing events, and ways to support and stay connected. Financial contributions continue to be gratefully accepted.
THE LAND SANCTUARY IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR AN UNDETERMINED PERIOD TO ATTEND TO RECOVERY AND RENEWAL.
