Listen to the birds and bullfrogs, inhale the fragrance of a multitude of herbs and salute the early morning sun. Join Kelly Fisher and Linda Stevens for a half day retreat in the very healing and spiritual garden of Jim and Peggy Duke .
The Green Farmacy Garden is a sanctuary located in Fulton, Maryland of approximately 300 native and nonnative species of plants that have been used traditionally and/or researched for medicinal purposes. Retired USDA botanist, James A. Duke, PhD, and his wife, Peggy, have been collecting medicinal plants for over sixty years, and in 1997, they transformed part of their pasture land into a teaching garden highlighting the plants that are featured in Jim’s book, The Green Pharmacy.
We will begin at 8:00 am with an introduction to the garden followed by an asana practice, meditation and chanting. At 10:30 we will share some fresh herbal tea and cookies and then be treated to a tour of this incredible garden. This is a special four hour treat for your spirit and your senses. Caution – this is an outdoor event, our mats will be directly on the grass of Mother Earth. In the event of inclement weather, we will have to cancel and refund your money. Please visit thegreenfarmacygarden.com for additional information about Jim and Peggy Duke’s incredible garden and life story.
All proceeds benefit The Retreat Center of Maryland. An e-mail detailing this event will be sent upon receipt of your registration.
