THE GARDEN GATHERING 101
This is a 3 day overnight gathering of women and children taking place in nature's surroundings at the Sai Yuen Farm on Cheng Chau Island, (just a 30min ferry from Central Pier). Together we aim to nourish each other by sharing wisdom, art, and skills in connection with lineage, consciousness, spirituality, ceremony, sustainability, bodymind heart centered practices, sustenance, and above all our Mother Earth. Check out GARDENERS to see who is offering, and SKILLSHARE to see what classes are on. Go to REGISTRATION to begin securing your teepee/tent and ticket. See you on the green. And so it is.
PLANT YOUR GARDEN
The Garden Gathering is a place for all, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or body size. We are committed to providing a nourishing and safe environment. Let us be non-judgemental, profoundly kind and open to all the diverse women we meet. With grace and humility we tend to the Earth, ourselves and each other, to discover our dreams and new ways of living in harmony.
SHARE IN SISTERHOOD
We are offering something to the betterment of our world, as we each carry a voice, a gift and power to discover and share. Sisterhood is harmonious integration regardless of where you may be on your path. We celebrate the feminine. Tending to this garden of vision, we awaken to the felt sense of belonging to that of which nourishes our spirit. May our harvest be shared and planted in communities and beyond

The Garden Gathering is not without intent. This is a beautiful opportunity to retreat into nature and realign to more simpler ways of living. We are able to consciously disconnect from everyday attachments such as being on our phones and laptops and retreat into a journey of self-love as we give ourselves the gift to nourish deeply in the loving embrace of the feminine heart. As we will only be together for a short time, we ask that you follow the guidelines so we can fully revel in the joy and beauty we create together.
