Exploring the sacred unity of life, humanity and Earth within a single, unfolding Universe.

Genesis Farm Memorial Planting Ceremonies

We wish to let you know that we are honored to celebrate the lives of people whose names you send to us. With the changes following from climate change and the recent Covid pandemic, we have had to adjust the times of our planting ceremonies.

Our next ceremony of remembrance will be on November 2. This is traditionally observed as ‘All Souls’ Day', and 'The Day of the Dead'. Unfortunately this ceremony will not be an open one; but the names you have sent are recorded in our Book of the Dead. Seeds will be planted and our ceremony of remembrance will take place.

We look toward to next Spring Equinox and the possibility that we can invite you to come and participate with us. We have missed your presence and will let you know the date.

As many of you know, Genesis Farm has been immersed in a process of trying to reinvent ourselves and the forms in which we can better share our mission. Since 2012, when we suspended the earlier forms of our work as a program center, we have been attempting to explore the depths of what Earth is asking of us.

The most revealing guidance for this exploration have been these words of Thomas Berry, cultural historian and author:

The great historic mission of our time is to reinvent the human, at the species level, with critical reflection, within the community of life systems, in a time developmental context, by means of story and shared dream experience.

In the weeks ahead, we earnestly hope to share our insights into the meaning of this challenge.

This website has been simplified because of so many unpredictable changes that are happening throughout the Earth. If you have questions, we look forward to hearing from you at (908)362-6735 or via email at office@genesisfarm.org, or click on Contact Us. We look forward to hearing from you.
