Most of us have heard of Findhorn (Scotland), made famous–at least initially–by its 40-pound cabbages. More significantly, however, the garden that produced these wonders was part of a “new age” community pioneering eco-friendly practices, specifically designed and managed in harmony and co-creation with nature, and nature spirits. This commitment and vision was practically unheard of in 1962 when Findhorn began, and not much more in vogue during the 1970s when media attention to the bountiful harvest put Findhorn on the national and international map. The Findhorn Foundation has grown during the last 50 years into a spiritual community, an eco-village, an international holistic educational center, and a publisher of books, and all of these outreaches and resources hold the same vision as when it began: helping to unfold a new human consciousness and create a positive and sustainable future.
Happy Birthday Findhorn, and many thanks for being a sustainable voice and mindset long before it was fashionable to do so, and for continuing to evolve into doing your Great Work!
