About the Event

Explore the role altars and rituals can play within your own spiritual and healing work.  Acquire new tools or deepen and enhance your current practices. You will be led through a series of self explorations, intended to promote growth in outlook and attitude as well as support increased self awareness.  

There will be a brisk hike and mindful practices throughout the  experience.  You will also be invited to find offerings which call to you as we journey our way through the Preserve.


Consider bringing talismans/charms that are  meaningful to you, as well as natural material offerings to leave at altars.  Other items include water bottle, good shoes for being outdoors, walking or hiking pole, and anything else that might help you feel comfortable being outdoors.


Dress for the weather and for being outdoors for 2 hours. If it is chilly dress extra warm and bring a blanket, if it is wet or rainy wear clothing to keep you warm and dry.


Sliding scale fee: $30 - $5, based upon your access to resources.

Harvest Preserve and Backyard Abundance members receive a 10% discount.


We need a minimum of 12 attendees to host the class. Please invite friends and family to ensure the event happens as scheduled. We would love to meet your loved ones.


Guided by Anne Ventullo, Eco-therapist and lover of the  woods.


The event is held outside. Masks are optional. We will try to maintain 6' distancing.


This class was developed in collaboration with many community partners and was funded by the Resource Enhancement and Protection Conservation Education Program (REAP CEP). It would not be possible without these sponsors and supporters. Please  frequent these generous organizations to thank them for donations of  time, materials and funds.
