Anne spreading thistle seed.

Anne is a retired teacher from North Carolina. Joe is a retiring arborist and retired college professor (biology). Together, they work with the elemental forces to create a larger, and more complex organism, 7 Acre Wood Farm.

Soon after meeting, Anne and Joe made pilgrimages to Findhorn, Scotland, and adopted the Findhorn Foundation principles of:

  • deep inner listening, and acting from that source of wisdom,
  • co-creation with the intelligence of nature, and
  • service to the world.
Tai Chi in the garden. Note: It’s not a skirt! It’s a kilt. It’s what one wears in the highlands.

We find that the permaculture ethics of Earth CarePeople Care, and Fair Share not only resonate well with us but also make for some convenient titles of webpages to describe our intent at 7 Acre Wood Farm.

If the above was too much for you to process, just think of us as two old hippies.
