Opening the Gates: A Spring Equinox Public Welcome
Please join us for the first public welcome at The Ojai Foundation since the Thomas Fire on Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. This humble celebration will be a time to gather in community, walk the land, share a meal, sit in council under the Teaching Tree, and give thanks. Together we will take stock of what has happened since the Thomas Fire and appreciate the many people who have contributed resources, time, and labor since our forced closure in December 2017. Held around the auspicious time of the Spring Equinox, this day is intended to support a prayer for our future and our vision of balance and well-being for all.
Lunch will be provided for registered attendees. Families welcome. $15 suggested minimum donation per person to pay for lunch.
