Come gather in community around the fire-pit circle on the last Saturday of each month

Gathering in Community


Grandfather fire invites story telling and community. Bring a poem, song, drum, guitar, musical instrument, story, snacks and a beverage or two! Come enjoy listening and sharing in a non-judgmental and intentional community amongst the serene land and nature.



Come late afternoon to enjoy the peaceful land at Surprise Farm Retreat Center for a walkabout and some solitude. Feel free to grab a book from the library, meditate in the meditation garden, enjoy the sunset...

Around sunset, we'll build and start the fire.


October 28th | November 25th | December 30th

Now that our fire-pit is on Saturday nights, we invite you to make it a weekend getaway!
