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

Genesis Farm Memorial Planting Ceremonies

We want you to know that we are honored to celebrate the lives of people whose names you send to us. With the impact of the climate crises as well as the recurring pandemics, we have had to adjust the actual times of our planting ceremonies.

Our next memorial planting will be March 21, the first day of spring. Unfortunately we cannot yet invite you to participate, but the names you have sent, and continue to send, are recorded in our Book of the Dead. Seeds will be planted and our ceremony of remembrance will take place by a small group of us who work and volunteer here.

Please try to check our postings here. We will post the next planting date and hopefully you will be able to join us. We have missed your presence but are committed to plant these wildflower seeds for you

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.
